It was created by FORGE, who have many great resources, but this one in particular is extraordinarily useful.

Heading to Salt Lake City tomorrow for a quick gig with the Army, so today’s a short post. World events made me want to avoid the interwebs at all cost, so there wasn’t much reading this weekend. Instead my father in law was in town, so we did DC-touristy things, like a Pentagon tour (I’ve been to meetings in the Pentagon, but never actually done the tour), caught a baseball game, and knocked out some home repairs.

I’m on my way down to Columbia, SC, to the National Advocacy Center for our annual testimony course (looking forward to seeing some of you there, btw).

Taneika, please email me so we can connect about your CV (or if it won’t be you, who you plan on handing the service off to). In the meantime, Here’s what caught my eye since last we spoke:

UT Health and the TX chapter of IAFN are offering a webinar series. The first one is coming up July 21st at 7:00am CT (!): Nursing Assessment of Female Genitalia, featuring Jamie Ferrell. One CEU will be provided. Cost is $15 for IAFN members/$25 for non-members. Details for the session are forthcoming.

Updated description: 

The forensic nurse must have expert knowledge of assessment findings with no room for error in interpretation. This webinar will provide the forensic nurse with advanced knowledge of normal, abnormal, and abnormal normal findings when assessing the female genitalia including appropriate and accurate use of terminology and documentation. After attending this event the forensic nurse will be more competent and confident in the nursing assessment of female genitalia during the forensic examination.

Happy 4th!
