ENGLEWOOD, N.J. — A doctor donning a white lab coat and Apple watch draws her weapon: a loaded syringe ready for injection.
This image and many more are part and parcel of Englewood Hospital Dr. Dana Corriel’s new social media endeavor.
"While in the office, my role is more professional by nature," said Corriel, who trained at Albert Einstein in the field of internal medicine. "On the outside, I can play around with creativity and present academic information with more public appeal".
Stumble across her Facebook page and you’ll see why.
There's a light pink photo of a hand holding a syringe that begs readers to take a vaccination quiz. Bright green peas in a vintage bowl — complete with nutritional fun facts. And an article that explores the positive changes being made in plant-based diets.
It’s all part of her unique vision.
"My content is not meant to replace an office visit," she said. "It should be used as a supplemental tool to enhance one's medical awareness as well as to inform the community of new findings in an easily accessible way."
The half-somersault maneuver, for example, is a very easy fix for vertigo but a fairly new discovery that some doctors may not have heard about.
Corriel does. And now so do you.
“[The pages] are a work in progress,” Corriel said. “I want to hone in on what helps people and what gets them excited.”
