Weekend Reading: What’s Going On, Never ending, Say What, & Going Viral 2121 1414 AEPC Health

With the new year just around the corner, the lists of what is “in” and what is “out” for 2023 are hitting the news. Thinking of painting a bathroom? According to interior designers, bright whites, grey and pastel paints are out of fashion. They suggest bold colors, like Pantone’s recently released 2023 Color of the Year, Viva Magenta. Fashion, tech, food, and aficionados of all kinds are on high alert for the news of what will be on trend for 2023. It will be out with old and in with the new!

Not all new trends are truly new. Sometimes the latest trend brings back something that was popular in a prior era – like today’s many fashion looks are a throwback to the 1990s. Loved or despised past trends often reappear. But whether it’s fashion, house decorating or something else, there are “classics” that are always “in” regardless of changing trends!

Like classics that are always in trend, viral infections such as the flu never completely disappear – and in some years are the leading trend. This year the trend is the “tridemic” – high rates of flu, RSV and COVID. Cases of other diseases like measles and Strep A, although small in number, are currently being carefully watched. Will these illnesses and other diseases ever be a thing of the past?

This Weekend Reading begins with What’s Going On?, with current news on a variety of healthcare related topics. In Never Ending, you will find articles on the holiday suicide myth, an ancient lung disease and asbestosis. Next explore the articles in Say What? on health literacy and the value of enhanced communication on patient safety. Finally, do not miss Going Viral and my personal favorite – Scientists Revive 48,500-Year-Old Virus!

I hope you enjoy the following:

1. What’s Going On?

Enjoy your weekend!
