Good morning,

I’m Bryan Fine, MD, MPH, CEO & Founder of Percentric. This e-newsletter – always evolving – focuses on keeping you well by addressing both non-COVID-19 and COVID-19 health concerns. We work hard to keep it real, and real-time.

1. Percentric COVID-19 Return to Work Webinar & EQA Session

Thank you to everyone who logged on yesterday for my webinar, “Practical HR Considerations for COVID-19 Return-to-Work.” As always, feel free to email me with any additional questions you may have.

2. COVID-19 Update: Stimulus checks

Stimulus checks might not make you physically healthier, but they will probably help ease a little bit of your anxiety right now. The first wave of checks were direct deposited last Friday, with many more expected by Wednesday, April 15th.

3. “Office” Ergonomics

Whether your office is now your couch or you’re still headed into work every day, ergonomics matters. Check out these tips to keep you from having a literal pain in your neck.

4. Was 3rd grade math always this hard?

I don’t remember it being this hard. If you, like me, are pretty sure you’re in over your head trying to be a teacher in addition to being a parent, see this list of educational subscriptions that are now free to parents during the coronavirus crisis and this list of always free educational resources.

5. Ask a Percentric Doc

Today’s Question: Is this reliable information? This isn’t a specific question so much as just acknowledging that I am regularly sent everything from news articles to Facebook posts about all things medical or scientific. I get it, with so much seemingly conflicting information going around, it’s hard to know what you can trust. I’ve been trained to interpret statistics, graphs, and studies, but sometimes I’m still misled. See this video on how to spot a misleading graph for tips on being a savvy consumer.

Stay safe, smart, and sane.
