Show Your Love of Liberty in February!

It happens every year – as soon as the holiday decorations come down, Valentine’s Day goes up. Everywhere we look, we see an explosion of candy hearts, flowers, chocolates, and Cupid-themed… everything. Messages of love surround us. Most of the time, we are called to reflect upon those we love. This year, we’re putting a spin on the usual and asking people to reflect on their love of liberty. What does liberty mean to you? Where do you find your liberty? Why do you love the liberties you have?

The Disneyland #measles outbreak is growing every day. Most news stories quote reputable physicians and public health groups who discuss the risks of measles and urge people to make sure their kids are fully vaccinated. But some news outlets interview doctors who dismiss the potential severity of measles and seem unworried by the outbreak. Jay Gordon, MD, a California pediatrician, is just one of these outliers who has been making the media rounds. We here at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia urge you to look to reputable sources like the CDC, American Academy of Pediatrics, and our own www.HistoryofVaccines.org for information about measles and measles #vaccination. And join the crowds who are saying #NoWayDrJay. #vaccines

"Vesalius on the Verge: The Book and the Body" explores the groundbreaking work of 16th century professor and physician Andreas Vesalius, who changed the way that human anatomy was taught forever with "De humani corporis fabrica (On the fabric of the human body)". The book did two things not seen before: it corrected errors in the conception of the human body that existed for over a millennia, and it combined text with artistic illustration, which enabled interactive learning. Where else can you see a first edition of the 1543 published text, a desiccated body juxtaposed with a full skeleton, and a contemporary recreation of Vesalius' dissection table? Plan your visit today! #muttermuseum #vesalius #anatomy #medicine #rarebooks

Today in Council I introduced an Early Education Tax Credit. The bill will make a difference for many low income families in Philadelphia by making it more affordable for low-income families to send their kids to Pre-School. Early education leads to success and I hope this tax credit will make it more available for Philadelphia Families.

"And if you don't care for American history, and don't care about women and the many minorities that shaped this country, and don't care about voices that shake the audience to the core or make them laugh, but if you like to get knocked out of your seat by a singer whose voice is both beautiful and haunting, get ye to the Plays and Players theatre to at least hear Mary Tuomanen sing "Brother, can you spare a dime?" I've never heard someone sing with that kind of a voice. Don't tell the music industry. We might lose yet another good Philadelphia actor-director." --Henrik Eger, Editor of Drama Around the Globe
