Thank you for today!

It was SO GREAT to see all of you in class today! Thank you so much for coming, and for all of your kind words – I could not believe you clapped when I came in – I’m still tearing up thinking about that. You are amazing.

As I mentioned at the beginning of class today, I decided that our time might be best spent today just talking about the course, having milk and cookies, and having a chance to talk in person a little bit.

Turns out today’s lecture on Valve Disease and Cardiomyopathy only contains 14 slides, and those slides are covered in one of the videos I posted for last week’s lectures (video 3, minutes 33-56).

So there are two videos posted for today on our lectures page:

  1. A lecture video covering today’s slides.
  2. A classroom video recording of today’s classroom time. (For some reason, there was an issue with the audio today – the mic was super loud, so I moved it away from my face – but that resulted in very poor sound quality in the recording. Will get that fixed for Wednesday.)

Some of you asked if I could post the recipe for the cookies I brought today – here it is! I love this recipe because it makes cookies that stay soft and chewy. I think it works best with room temperature rather than melted butter though.

Finally, a couple photos of Billie Eilish tonight at the Met Gala. Such an amazing move on Anna Wintour’s part to make Billie and Amanda Gorman co-chairs of the event. UGHH life is good.

Lectures page is updated!

I’m finally feeling better, and I’ve updated our lectures page so that all the dates and times and lecture titles are accurate. Yay! I’ll work on the syllabus next and post that soon so that you can see all the official details regarding the course. You know how things work by now, though, having gone through General Histology and General Pathology with me.

It’s weird how we’ve gone through two whole courses together and I’ve never actually met you guys in person. So I am SO EXCITED to be in the classroom with you finally!!
