For better or worse, disease touches every facet of our lives; it affects how we live and interact with others. In this blog I explore the intersection of disease and society. Each month gets its own theme, as follows:
- January ~ novelty
- February ~ love
- March ~ combat
- April ~ economics
- May ~ language
- June ~ family
- July ~ wildlife
- August ~ art
- September ~ education
- October ~ exploration
- November ~ agriculture
- December ~ religion
I will post twice a month: the first post will highlight a disease associated with the theme of the month, and the second will discuss a topic related to the theme. I will aim to keep the posts short and sweet, and will also post sporadically about other relevant articles, books, and issues.
What I am: I’m currently a postdoctoral fellow studying chronic disease epidemiology.
What I am not: I am most certainly NOT a doctor, nurse, physician’s assistant, dentist, chiropractor, naturopath, or any other kind of medical practitioner or student of the great science of medicine. While all the information I post will be based on the best information I can find, none of it is intended as medical advice or diagnosis.
