So I know I’ve been pretty quiet here lately. Between my two jobs, a few new volunteer positions (cancer, church, and mom related), and normal shuttling of children to all the places, I’ve been pretty slammed. But I have been writing a few things lately, anytime you’re interested, you can find my latest post on my contributor page on Cure Forward. So far, five of my pieces have been published, and they focus on the ideas of precision medicine and clinical trials. If you’re interested in a cheat sheet– here they are:
- Explaining precision medicine as an improvement on the Coinstar machine. Because of course.
- Talking to myself while making my bed, contemplating whether or not someone should have molecular profiling or genomic analysis done.
- Liquid biopsies: because who wouldn’t prefer a blood draw to an invasive procedure?
- Wondering if you should find if you have a BRCA mutation if you already know you have breast cancer? Here’s why I think so.
- Comparing the FDA to a protective parent. Because every analogy can’t include a coinstar machine.
Check them out, and as always, I’d love to hear what you think!
