Hello world! I am a historian-turned-bioethicist-turned-historian-again. I was diagnosed with a form of ovarian cancer in July 2005, was surgically treated, and have been dealing with the ravages ever since. (Thankfully, I have been cancer-free since then.)
Going through this experience and the many that followed (surgical menopause probably being the most notable) has changed my life and made me dedicated to researching and, hopefully one day, improving the state of gynecological and obstetric health and healthcare for women in the United States (and abroad!).
PS: No, I am not a medical doctor, and I have no intention of becoming one. Please take the information contained in this blog as simply an unprofessional opinion. Even were someone to self-identify as a medical doctor on the Internet, one should always consult a doctor personally to ensure than any information received is accurate. I may not like doctors, but fake-doctors are worse.
