"Better-informed patients, they say, are more likely to take better care of themselves, comply with prescription drug regimens and even detect early-warning signals of illness, as Mr. Keating did.

I wonder how having better informed students, parents, school counselors, and teachers would help us support students on their #K16 journey? Seems like we could learn from personal medical records on tracking progress over time.

Knowledge about yourself can be healing!

#love. It's a mix of beginning to identify purpose with tracking your history so far. Very cool.
