Senator John McCain’s “maverick” politics placed him among the most intriguing contemporary legislators. His policies and feud with the current president continue to inspire support and criticism from the partisan masses.

Netflix 13: How to Start the Discussion
written by Nadia Hashimi, M.D.
on Saturday, 10th June, 2017

As a novelist and as a reader, I believe stories can impact our lives. They bring us to emotional brinks, challenge our way of thinking, and introduce new ideas. Sometimes a character shows us we’re not alone in our feelings. I believe controversial works can be catalysts for uncomfortable but necessary conversations. The Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why, has raised much ...

on Sunday, 26th July, 2015

With the UN reporting that there are now [LINK: http://www.unhcr.org/558193896.html] 60 million displaced persons in our world, it's imperative we pay attention to the plight of those looking to redefine home.  The numbers were staggering when I began my research into the refugee crisis in 2009 but have continued to rise, unfortunately.

The Pearl that Broke Its Shell, A Reflection from author Dr. Nadia Hashimi
written by Nadia Hashimi, M.D.
on Friday, 23rd May, 2014

On May 6th of this year, I walked into our local Barnes & Noble with my husband and our two children.  We had to see it to believe it.  The novel I’d written three years ago was sitting front and center on the “New Release” table – touchable and very real.    “Mommy, there’s your book,” my son noted casually before running off to the children’s section, ...

written by Nadia Hashimi, M.D.
on Monday, 6th January, 2014

With cold and flu season upon us, it’s a good time to remind ourselves of what we can do to keep our little ones healthy and treat the symptoms when they arise despite our best efforts.
