We love it when healthcare professionals get innovative and invent something awesome (and super cute) for their use on the job! Our latest find from the Fall 2013 issue of Scrubs is CharMED, a line of clip-on stethoscope bling made from zinc, an antibacterial metal.
What’s the backstory behind CharMED’s cute charms? As she was leaving home one day, Jennifer Namazy’s young daughter gave her a good luck charm—her glitter ring. Not wanting to lose it, Namazy, a San Diego physician, attached it to her trusty Littmann and proceeded to see patients at a pediatric clinic. Kids were charmed by the sparkle effect, and Namazy thought (correctly!) that other stethoscope-toting practitioners would be, too.
