My lecture on reproductive anatomy is always a student favorite. Mostly this is because of the Playdoh I bring in for them design genitalia. They laugh while they create and I love to look at the final results (take a look below for more).  A couple of things I find in...

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Professor Jeff Armstrong, a psychology professor at Northampton Community College in Pennsylvania. Professor Armstrong is the host of The Neuro Transmission, a podcast that explores a variety of issues related to psychology....

I was fortunate to be invited to present at the 23rd Annual Avalon Urological Symposium in Avalon, New Jersey this past weekend (thank you Dr. Demetrius Bagley). There were talks on a variety of urological topics but my favorite two talks were on female sexual dysfunct...

I have a vivid memory of my daughter coming home from high school one day telling me that she learned vaginal discharge was a sign of a sexually transmitted infection. A long conversation ensued in which we discussed STIs, vaginal discharge, and high school sex ed clas...

Every once in awhile I have a semester that just works better than ever before. I'm not sure why or how this happens, but I love it when it does. Chemistry is important in the classroom and I was lucky enough this semester to have lots of it. I had my fair share of tal...
