Back from break!

I was in Winnipeg, Manitoba for the last three days attending the 26th Annual Canadian Student Health Research Forum. It was a lovely multi-disciplinary symposium, complete with:

The Human Microbiome. It’s FASCINATING. I’ll blog about this very soon.

I have several things I want to blog about in the near future. But for now, I’d like to share with you a lovely infographic on drug addiction & relapse, by Adrienne Erin (I’m a sucker for infographics, btw, r/infographics is a great place to visit if you want a knowledge-shot). I mentioned in a previous post on a heroin vaccine that relapse is part of what makes drug addiction so sinister.

Here’s the breakdown:

Relapse: The Revolving Door Infographic

I find it mind-blowing that the relapse rate for painkillers/opiods is 97%! If you’d like to contact the designer, she can be reached here: adrienneerin77 (at) gmail

Hope you all enjoyed, and talk to you soon!
