Congratulations, Daniel! What an accomplishment. You are an inspiration to us all. By the way, while you are reworking MH Blog, I would love if you could revise the link you have on your sidebar for the Institute for Medicine in Society (SUNY StonyBrook), which is undergoing a huge transformation, and is now called The Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care, and Bioethics. I know...pretty unweildy name, but we needed the big name where some of our biggest ideas could live. The new website is http://www.stonybrook.edu/bioethics. Come up and see us sometime!


Inspiration, schminspiration! But thanks so much for the kind words.

I revised the link to the Center at SUNY StonyBrook . . . one of my reworking tasks is to go through the links, adding and revising, so having you provide this information up front is extremely helpful.

I like the new name very much, and as far as visiting, be careful what you wish for!

As a frequent, but quiet, reader (I prefer to avoid the term 'lurker', which has a sinister sense to it), I'd like to congratulate you on your achievements, both academic and blogic (I'd also like to claim ownership of the neologism 'blogic'). Having failed to complete a PhD following my specialty training in Rheumatology, I am filled with admiration for anyone who manages to survive the process. A subsequent change in direction has led me undertake a Masters degree in epidemiology (hopefully complete at the end of this year); it has only relatively recently dawned on me that medical humanities sits at the intersection of my interests in rheumatology, chronic pain, epidemiology and ethics. Your blog has been an invaluable resource, and a source of much pleasure, as this realization has evolved. So, thank you, and I look forward to watching as your blog continues its evolution.


Ownership granted, though I have no sanction for conferring IP on anyone . . .

Rheumatology, chronic pain, epi, and ethics -- please do continue to lurk and comment, as these topics are near and dear to my heart. In fact, there is a wonderful rheumatology collection in a local medical library, so I am hoping to move into some historical work there, building off of my work in pain.

In any case, thank you for reading, and for the kind words.
