For busy nurse practitioners, healthy eating at work can be tough. Even if you've successfully packed a lunch bag filled with carrot sticks, there's a break room full of chips, leftover birthday cake and other similarly tempting treats calling your name.

It’s great to be back, MidlevelU! It’s been quite the summer. In these past few months, I got braces (again!) and was mistaken for a high schooler no less than ten times. I graduated from Ohio State with an honors Neuroscience B.S. and moved back home to Cleveland. We threw my younger sister her high school graduation party, where I decided that if planning a wedding is anything as involved as that affair I’m eloping. I backed my poor car into a pole, and a long standing foot injury finally got fixed. And through it all, I’ve been steadily preparing to begin Baldwin Wallace’s Accelerated BSN program, starting August 24th.
I'm back on the TED talks kick. Yes, the past few mornings on my exercise bike have been spent madly peddling away, sweat dripping down my face, while listening to inspirational speakers from around the globe. From solving our primary care woes, to talking burn-out among healthcare providers, there are some smart people out there with thought-provoking ideas that are helping to change the way we approach and practice medicine.
