I Heart Geeks

Whereas most people rely on travel magazines or tourist guides to inspire the site of their next leisurely vacation, Dr. Dora Ann Mills evidently relies on literature from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) for vacation hints.

Dr. Mills, the Director of the Maine Center for Disease Control, writes in the fledgling Public Health blog that her recent trip Downeast "to take the time to breathe a bit more deeply" was inspired by none other than a study published by the HSPH that concluded Washington County has one of the most severe declines in life expectency among women in the country.

No word yet on which United Nations publications Dr. Mills consults when planning her foreign travels.
