Welcome to the Flight of the Butterfly blog! Peace, blessings, and respect for taking the time to read the ramblings, stories, and reflections of a young primary care physician. When a young butterfly takes flight, the world takes note of its colors and the way the wings flutter aimlessly in the wind. The butterfly is also a symbol of rebirth, freedom, beauty, and individuality. It is my avatar. This blog is in no way supposed to be about the “how tos” of life, a quick get healthy recipe, or a political soap box on which I stand. It is simply a space to share my adventures in medicine, in life, and the lessons on healing passed down to me from by beloved mother. These lessons have become the guiding principles that I use to navigate through this crazy ride called life. At my core, I feel that health is a human right, that every person should be treated with dignity. Good health, and access to health care is a privilege, and it shouldn’t be. With that being said, thank you to everyone who empowered me to use my voice and happy reading!
