It ain’t tox, but . . .

I am a little late in finding this, but I very highly recommend a brilliant post by Bob Wachter (of the blog Wachter’s World) analyzing the superb writing in Atul Gawande’s August New Yorker piece on hospice and end-of-life care. Read in conjunction with Gawande’s essay — titled “Letting Go” — it serves as a master class in how to do popular medical journalism the right way.  Needless to say, Gawande’s piece is also an absolute must-read.

    Thanks for this link! A must read for anyone interested in medicine and medical writing, this one is not solely for the tox folks out there.
