We are back open for business!

Just 3 years ago I was sitting at this computer writing a blog 12 days after the Hurricane Harvey disaster. Now we are in a new disaster of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are still happy to report that everyone in our AHEC family is safe as far as we know. Every day is a new experience and we, as much as everyone else, face new challenges every day.  While we are physically ok, we are still coping with the psychological changes of how to operate within the new realities.


Are You Fluent in Swearing?



Do you think swearing isn’t big or clever?  Think again.

A study done by psychologists at Marist College has concluded that the use of swear words is a sign of a better vocabulary.  Being a person that was taught how to swear when I first went to clinical assignments, I am highly interested in this subject.  If someone has accused you of sounding less intelligent because you swear too much, don’t worry. This study proves them wrong (See Mom?).



Shake, Bump, or High Five? The nature of germs



This picture shows the powder transferred during a handshake simulating germ spread.  According to this picture we should have handshake free zones in our health care settings to deter the spread of pathogens. The fist bump has been declared the healthiest of all kinds of greetings. They are 20 times more hygienic than handshakes and 10 times cleaner than high-fives according to the Monday online version of the American Journal of Infection Control.
