Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 13 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.
There have been so many promotions for healthcare workers that I have come across in the last few weeks and I figured that it would be great to have them all in one place for you guys! I will keep this updated as I find out about more brands/stores that are giving us discounts/free items! So proud of all of you and your dedication. You are ALL heroes and I am so proud to be a part of this medical community.
