Reading into Diagnosis
Last week, I presented a paper at the Anthropology and Literature Workshop at Johns Hopkins University. It was my first time writing through (and sharing) a recent experience of genetic diagnosis. Check out a version of the piece up at Medical and Health Humanities.
"We leave the Genetics Department and walk slowly through the hospital, winding our way through the corridors. We look around as if we are searching for something, or on our way to visit a family member. It is early March, and through the windows, the sun slants onto prints inspired by genetic concepts."
