A curated selection of news from Dean Lloyd Minor

What should you be reading today? Over on OZY’s Presidential Daily Brief, Lloyd Minor, MD, dean of the medical school, points readers to some of the most interesting stories in medicine, bioscience and beyond. Among his picks as guest curator are a recent Atlantic article on creativity and a Guardian piece on hill climbing. Of the latter he writes:

Climbing and walking in the hills provides beneficial exercise, relaxation and renewal. Hope Whitmore, a writer living outside Edinburgh, Scotland, describes her journeys as well as her struggles with rheumatoid arthritis. As someone who loves to walk two dogs in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, I can certainly relate to Whitmore’s description of her evening walks as “a healing, a cleansing of the soul, drawing a line between the workaday world and the night time.”
