Writing an Article for U of T Med Magazine, who me?

You ever get one of those emails that comes out of nowhere and feels great? Well, I was just asked to write an article for UofT Med Magazine. This alumni magazine is put out to support graduates of the U of T Medicine program has been doing great stuff on mental health for physicians and how medical professionals need to learn to support themselves and their colleagues in this wildly challenging field. I’ve been asked to do a piece on comedy in medicine. I’ve almost got a first draft cooking; and a second draft that’s about to go in the oven.

We’ll see how this cake turns out.
