While technology today allows women to take on these two roles, archaic ideas deeply rooted in collective thinking continue to lead women to believe that they must choose between career and motherhood.

Bacteria on Phones? Healthcare Facilities Can Do Without It

In a hospital or care center, communication equipment is vital. If there’s an emergency at the front desk, or if a patient’s condition worsens, doctors and nurses need technology that lets them know about it immediately.
