Dr. Victoria Sweet, SLOW MEDICINE, THE WAY TO HEALING
A radical new understanding of how medicine is best practiced, from the award-winning author of God’s Hotel
Over the years that Victoria Sweet has been a physician, “healthcare” has replaced medicine, “providers” look at their laptops more than at their patients, and costs keep soaring, all in the ruthless pursuit of efficiency. Yet the remedy that economists and policy makers continue to miss is also miraculously simple. Good medicine takes more than amazing technology; it takes time—time to respond to bodies as well as data, time to arrive at the right diagnosis and the right treatment.

- Tips on lawn/leaf clean up: (From the Farmer’s Almanac)
