Be Heard on The Differential

Rick Pescatore, DO, Emergency Medicine, 03:53PM Nov 15, 2013

I consider it a heck of a privilege to be able to write for The Differential. Once a week I sit back in my chair late at night, a glass sweating on top of a coaster at the side of my computer, the monitor's pale glow the only light in a darkened house. A tired Jack Russell snores at my feet and I stifle yawns and the call of sleep as I type my tales. I and the other bloggers here have been given a unique opportunity -- the chance for our words to be read by thousands of medical students and health professionals from all over the globe. 

I enjoy reading the entries of the other members of the blog. Sara provides a perspective that few of us would ever know otherwise. Bryce's prose turns our routines into adventures, Casey makes us reflect upon the universe around us. Alexa and Amanda pose questions that garner responses from every corner of the world. 

But we're not here for ourselves, we're here for you. The Differential stands as a wonderful meeting point for medical students and our compatriots, and unites like-minded individuals across oceans, mountains, and continents. Here we have a voice that can be heard by many.

So let us help you to change the world. Medical students the world over spend so much of their time bringing attention to their noble causes -- clubs hold bake sales and car washes, activists campaign through the halls for their wonderful purpose. From the Philippines to Appalachia, short white coats are setting out to make a difference. Here is a place to let the world know what you're doing.

Post below, tell us about the great work you're doing. Let the thousands of students who click to The Differential each day know about your cause, and entreat us all to help you in your goals. We'll start it off with a small donation from the bloggers of The Differential for one of the worthy causes!
