Well done to Dr Hisham Ayoub, one of our Online Program MA students, who has published an essay in Plaid, a peer-reviewed journal for people living with and inspired by diabetes. “Reflections and Transmutations: A Portrait of the Diabetic as a Young Man,” had its origins as a final paper our online program courses, Social and Cultural Histories of Disease, taught by Gianna Pomata. Thanks to Gianna for encouraging Hisham to publish and many congratulations to Hisham on such an elegant and powerful piece of writing.
