Helen Baker, clinical instructor at Emory's Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing: "My resolution for this year is to get control of my email."
Registered nurse Mitzi E. DeBusk, a consultant for a home health agency in Richmond, Virginia, whose young adult daughter Brittany died in 2018 from a cardiac event: "My New Year's resolution is to make the public aware heart disease has no age limit. Simple diagnostic tests can make a difference. Too many kids are dropping dead practicing or during an athletic event. For young adults in their 20s, like my daughter, the first thing people ask is, 'Was it drugs?' Brittany's autopsy showed no drugs, no alcohol. It was a heart defect. Physicians, nurse practitioners and physician's assistants all need to listen to the patient, ask pertinent questions and do a full physical. A simple EKG or echocardiogram can tell so much and save lives. My motto is, 'Every beat matters. Don't skip a chance to save a life.'"
