(To my gentleman readers – please pardon this week’s post. You are more than welcome to read it, of course, and there will be advantages to doing so, but it’s really aimed at the females among us. That will make sense momentarily.)
This week’s post comes as a result of three experiences from the past few weeks, all reminders of the necessity of tooting one’s own horn.
We’ll set the stage with one of those experiences; that is, publication this week by the AP of this article
Now, I’m a firm believer that headlines are really only intended to suck us readers in – so I didn’t just take the headline at face value.
I read the full article… Unfortunately, and frustratingly, the headline is a very accurate representation of the research results. And I am appalled.
So much so, that it made me double down on the meat of this post – to be revealed in a moment – and the reason why this matters to us as patient advocates (no matter whether we are male or female.)
