Happiness and Wellbeing from the Isotope Queen


"Meditation" and Mat and "Mangroves" and Marilyn, 2021

A bright spot in an otherwise challenging month with health care issues was giving a lecture to Matthew Wooller’s class on Happiness and Wellbeing at the University of Alaska. Seemingly, this topic might not be what you’d think a terminally ill patient might be an “expert” on, but I’ve needed to build capacity to handle what comes progressively with ALS.


Tip 1: Laughter is your best medicine.

Tip 2: Figure out what gets you up in the morning. Go for it.


Tip 3: It’s OK to cry every now again and grieve your losses.


Have a look at these zoom recordings of my lecture and other thoughts about being a woman in science and science advocacy.
