My 97 yr old grandma watched Hidden Figures & causally noted it was interesting cause that was her role at the Avro Arrow – to work on math problems for the engineers. Constantly reminding me that she is the most badass person I know! #womeninSTEM 👩🏼🏫👩🏻🔬👩🏽💻👩🏿⚕️

If you wish to understand value-based payment, read Animal Farm. If you wish to understand over testing, read Othello. If you wish to understand EHRs, read Moby Dick. Any other literary connections?
