Welcome. This website is a showcase for my writing. On the right are links to four subject areas: Diabetes, Noncommunicable Disease, Other Reporting, and Humor, etc.
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1973 at the age of 9. It's given me much to write about over the years. Click that link, and you’ll find my personal stories, factual reporting, and recent blog entries. If you’re looking for more information about diabetes, I recommend the American Diabetes Association’s site: www.diabetes.org.
"Noncommunicable disease" is a topic that I've been blogging about since October 2009. Chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer are increasingly affecting the entire world, including even the poorest countries. My blogs, on that page, cover the political movement to increase awareness of the issue.
"Other Reporting" includes articles and blogs on medical/scientific topics other than NCDs/diabetes.
“Humor, etc.” is a collection of writings in which I attempt to be funny and/or insightful. You be the judge.
Both my published and unpublished work is posted here. The pieces are listed in chronological order on each page.
Please feel free to email me about anything you see here.
