The Hypotenuse Perspective (A Blog)

“There are two sides to every story,” the saying goes. Well, Dr. Nixon believes there are three.

Her thinking, writing, and speaking covers many topics–corporate communications, medical philosophy, and even zombies–but they are all united under what she calls the “hypotenuse perspective,” a third, rarely considered angle on familiar topics. This hypotenuse perspective, like the element of a triangle it is named after, builds a bridge between two points that may seemingly be disconnected, mutually exclusive, or deemed incapable of holding space together. Whether she’s speaking on nutritional science, trauma recovery, or 19th century diseases, the hypotenuse perspective links all of her work, and makes her a unique thinker and recognized transformational speaker and writer in our polarized times.
