PHARMACISTS: Leaving this Public Health Workforce

By NIHCM Foundation

This infographic takes a close look at the pharmacist workforce and its role in the COVID-19 response.

Pharmacists are trusted and accessible, with 90% of Americans living within five miles of a pharmacy. They are well-positioned to address vaccine hesitancy and ensure equitable COVID-19 vaccine distribution and access. Leveraging and supporting pharmacists could help address public health priorities both during and after the corona virus pandemic.

What is a Non-Fungible Token?

About NFTs

[By staff reporters]

Sponsored: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

According to Wikipedia, a non-fungible token (NFT) (previously referred to as Bitcoin 2.0) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files. Access to any copy of the original file, however, is not restricted to the buyer of the NFT. While copies of these digital items are available for anyone to obtain, NFTs are tracked on blockchains to provide the owner with a proof of ownership that is separate from copyright.

In 2021, there has been increased interest in using NFTs. Blockchains like Ethereum, Flow, and Tezos have their own standards when it comes to supporting NFTs, but each works to ensure that the digital item represented is authentically one-of-a-kind. NFTs are now being used to commodify digital assets in art, music, sports, and other popular entertainment. Most NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain; however, other blockchains can implement their own versions of NFTs.

Carbon Footprint!

CARBON

The NFT market value tripled in 2020, reaching more than $250 million. The rise of NFT transactions has also led to increased environmental criticism. The computation-heavy processes associated with proof-of-work blockchains, the type primarily used for NFTs, require high energy inputs that are contributing to global warming. The carbon emissions produced by the energy needed to maintain these blockchains has forced some in the NFT market to rethink their carbon footprint.

Could ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE Help Make Health Care More Fair?

Helping us believe what patients say

A new study shows how training deep-learning models on patient outcomes could help reveal gaps in existing medical knowledge.

By Karen Hao

In the last few years, research has shown that deep learning can match expert-level performance in medical imaging tasks like early cancer detection and eye disease diagnosis. But there’s also cause for caution.

Other research has shown that deep learning has a tendency to perpetuate discrimination. With a health-care system already riddled with disparities, sloppy applications of deep learning could make that worse.
