[The Carver College of Medicine was closed last week for New Year’s Day, so enjoy this rerun.]

Pienta, Kaci McCleary, and Caroline Sanderson join special guest Frank Canady on this week’s show. Frank’s here to talk about his recent astrocytoma diagnosis, discuss what he’s experienced during treatment so far, and reflect on some of the things he’s learned about what patients experience when facing a serious illness.

Also, the kiss of death for your research poster may not have anything to do with your research. And John and Dylan Todd (among others) are revitalizing Vital Signs, the on-hiatus medical student newspaper which traces its history to well before Roe v. Wade.
