Hi DIGA members!
I’m writing to share a story about a 3rd year Michigan State medical student who was featured in The New York Times. This student who, in her words, “knew approximately nothing” was asked by her family to diagnose her niece’s eye problem. Why was this 3-year-old so irritable and what was wrong with her eye? Thanks to VisualDx, she arrived at the correct diagnosis and saved her niece from going permanently blind!
In our medical education, tools like VisualDx are an invaluable resource to augment our diagnostic process as well as foster good habits for lifelong learning.
If you're interested in learning more about VisualDx (our partner that offers VisualDx for free to DIGA members), contact Lauren MacDonough (VisualDx Community Engagement Coordinator) at her email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. Lauren can set you up with a free trial and/or help you access VisualDx through your school.
