written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Sunday, 5th November, 2017

This morning, a group of Lady Docs and friends were running or walking to help raise fund to end women's cancer.

It was inspirational to see many cancer survivors walking and running among us. ...

My husband and I had not gone to see a movie for a long time until last weekend. I was going to propose a romantic movie such as “Tulip Fever,” but we were told it didn’t have a good review.

on Saturday, 15th July, 2017

I dropped out of my girl scout troop in Vietnam at around nine years old. I had barely started the girl scout journey a few weeks before. It was a steamy hot summer day in Saigon, and our troop had to wait in the sun for the President of South Vietnam to visit all the boy and girl scout troops in the biggest park of the city.
