Not a #sommelier over here but I figured I can't call myself @dr.wine.and.gyn and hardly ever talk about wine! When we first moved to Sonoma County, I realized how much of a wine novice I was. We went to several tastings and other than knowing this tastes good or this tastes bad, I was clueless. I am starting to develop a better palette for wines and have found I love myself a glass of medium-bodied wine: red or white. 🥂🍷
So that had me thinking, what is the difference between red and white wine anyway? After doing some research I learned that the differences start with the grapes. They really are different colors! That's not the only difference though as each style of wine is processed in its own way.
White wine is typically pressed after removing skins, seeds and stems. The grape juice is then allowed to ferment into wine. Red wine is quite the opposite. For red wine, you keep the grapes fully intact prior to crushing them. The crushed grapes are allowed to ferment first prior to pressing the juice. This added step of leaving the grapes intact during fermentation is why red wine has the antioxidant properties that white wine lacks.
I'll post more about the benefits of red wine later. For now and because of all this wine talk, I am going to pour myself a glass of #pinotnoir . 😁 What's your wine of choice?

What did your kids have for lunch today? Tell me. 👇🏻 No matter what it was, #noshame
Outside of marital and financial stressors, the most common stressor is how we feed our kids. It starts with breastfeeding... there’s guilt for not breastfeeding at all, Not BFing enough, BFing too much, and then the cycle continues...
Baby-led weaning like @borntoeatbook or baby food and supplements. And don’t get me started on toddler formula now 🙄
Then, before your kid can say diet, we start freakin out about growth curves and we secretly desire our child to be “average” or “below average” and we stress about what to feed them and freak out if they “don’t like healthy food” and “only want sweets and desserts.”
So, wanna know what my kids eat? Whatever they want! It’s my job to provide the food for them, but what they choose to eat is none of my business.
I prepare a breadth of options (including processed foods *gasp!*) and no food is off limits. Some days, my kids eat broccoli and carrots. Some days (like today) they eat grilled cheese and chocolate animal crackers. .
I’ll never tell them what they SHOULD eat. I’ll encourage them and educate them and answer questions as they arise- “Mommy, why do you like salads?” But I’ll be damned if I EVER insert MY bias into their decision making.
Don’t sweat the small stuff y’all. And feeding your kids is SMALL stuff. #FirstWorldProblems - This is entirely an issue of abundance and NOT actually an issue at all. Your kids “get it” and the less you interfere, the better. So, give ‘em the damn bread or a cookie if they want it. I promise they’ll eat veggies some days too. 😉
Yes, even dermatologists sometimes work on Saturdays!
While I like to see a lot of complicated cases (🦓), I also do plenty of bread and butter dermatology. Here I am treating lesions of molluscum contagiosum, which are little wart-like bumps caused by a virus. They eventually go away even without treatment once the immune system recognizes them, but this can take a long time and they can be itchy and have a tendency to spread.
There are many different treatment options for molluscum, but my favorite is something called curettage, as seen in the video here. A curette is a tool with a sharp loop at the end that is very useful for a variety of things in dermatology. For young children, I have them come in with numbing cream applied ahead of time (which has caused the little red circles on this patient’s skin), and then the bumps are really easy to remove. #adiosmolluscum
You can expect new & great things from @drmrolle . Newness is here! ——————————

I love Saturday mornings...especially when coffee is involved. #butcoffeefirst#flatlayoftheday
As a PGY3 in Psychiatry, I’ve been trying to consume as much knowledge on therapy (specifically CBT and psychodynamic) as we are expected to take on therapy patients this year. I’m also leading a group this year on social anxiety. First thing’s first, learn how to successfully be an effective group leader.
Apple cider vinegar has many benefits, some which are supported by science.
This includes weight loss, reduced cholesterol, lower blood sugar levels and improved symptoms of diabetes.
*Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting the sugar from apples. This turns them into acetic acid, which has potent biological effects.
*Acetic acid can kill harmful bacteria or prevent them from multiplying, and therefore can be used as a disinfectant and natural preservative.
*One of the most successful effects of vinegar is on diabetes patients who need to lower their blood sugar. *In addition to improving insulin sensitivity and helping lower blood sugar levels, apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight. Vinegar can help people stay full longer and eat fewer calories. Studies show that when vinegar is taken along with a high carb meal, 200-275 fewer calories are eaten throughout the rest of the day. *Apple cider vinegar might also be able to lower cholesterol, improve heart health, and protect against cancer. Studies have shown that various types of vinegar can kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.
@medspiration had the honor of sponsoring a Saturday Soup Kitchen for these kids today! We fed almost 500 women & children! Special thank you to each of our supporters for helping make today possible!

I swear med school isn’t all yoga and crop tops! Sometimes I do real doctor things 🤓
HONORED to be 1 of 60 medical students in the COUNTRY to receive the AOA National Honors Research Fellowship for my VASCULAR NEUROSURGERY research this year 🧠 Couldn’t have done it without the support of Dr. Zipfel and my amazingly meticulous Deepti 💓
Dr. Smith to me: “Next time it’ll be a photograph to place on the (Nobel Laureate) wall behind us!” 🤣 I’m prolly not gonna win a Nobel Prize, but it would be nice to see more female faces up there don’t you think!? ——————————————————————————-
Jin Vivian Lee, a second-year medical student at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, is one of 60 recipients of a $5,000 summer research fellowship from the Alpha Omega Alpha National Honor Medical Society
The Carolyn L. Kuckein Student Research Fellowship Award supports Lee’s research on hemorrhages in the brain caused by ruptured aneurysms and complications that may occur in the days or weeks afterward. The specific condition, known as delayed cerebral ischemia, results in insufficient oxygen to the brain and often causes severe disability or death
Lee has been working in the lab of Gregory J. Zipfel, MD, a Washington University professor of neurosurgery and neurology. “Vivian is an asset to our research team,” said Zipfel, co-director of the Stroke and Cerebrovascular Center and director of the neurosurgery residence program. “She is a hard worker, detail-oriented and enthusiastic...”
“There is nothing more fascinating than the human brain,” Vivian said. “I developed a sense of wonder for the human brain during my undergraduate studies, when I sought to understand the biological basis of neurological disorders. I’ve been fortunate to work with remarkable mentors such as Dr. Zipfel. I am very excited to unravel more mysteries about the brain this summer”
Only one student per school is allowed to apply to the fellowship each year. “The competition is impressive. We are proud of Vivian,” said the School of Medicine’s Morton E. Smith, MD, a professor emeritus of ophthalmology and visual sciences, associate dean emeritus and councilor for the university’s AOA chapter
Did he mess with the wrong bear?
This 77-year-old bear hunter was attacked and mauled by a grizzly bear! 🐻
Circumstances of the attack were still unclear but the bear left an indelible impression on the victim.
His hunting partner killed the bear. The patient did survive and although the injuries were significant, he was stable and was driven by snowmobile to the highway where a medical helicopter flew him to the nearest hospital where he was recovering.
Multiple articles confirmed he is a hunting guide in Alaska. More specifically, a veteran guide for bear hunting.
Wildlife troopers, employees of the Alaska department of fish and game and friends of the patient removed the bear from the field on the next day.
Recovery photo is shown on the next post!
