A recent ep of #GreysAnatomy featured a black woman whose numbers didn't allow her onto the kidney transplant list - but #eGFR is calculated w/ false, dated assumptions abt black bodies. Thank you for highlighting these biases in medicine @EllenPompeo @shondarhimes @GreysABC!
We're glad to see #eGFR and race being talked about on tonight's #GreysAnatomy episode. The recent release of a race-free approach to eGFR from our joint Task Force with @ASNKidney is an important step in ensuring health and healthcare equity for all. kidney.org/news/nkf-and-asn-…

Under water is a beaming Mommy orca who is also telling her to calm down and stop bothering those nice fish lol
This newborn baby orca is the happiest observed orca to date, earning her the title of ‘Happiest baby Orca on earth.’ “Her energy is amazing –- I guess no different than my little kids. She is constantly jumping in the air and often curls up and does belly flops”

It's "ich fühle mich jetzt genug besucht" 🎁
Yesterday I learned there's a phrase in German meaning "I am feeling visited enough" that you can say when you want company to go and this is brilliant.

"She was a perfect mother. Everything she did was for the kids," said Megan Richards' husband. The pandemic has caused so many tragic stories like this - but we can still lift up the grieving among us. scoop.upworthy.com/strangers…

Sharing is caring
My mother sent me photos of her cats “taking turns” in this tiny basket and frankly I care about nothing else today
