Winner of Inflammatory Language Contest!
The Febrile Muse has chosen three illustrations by Dr. Monica Lalanda, an Emergency Room physician in Spain, as the winning entry of the Inflammatory Language contest. Dr. Lalanda will receive The Best Science Writing Online 2012 as her prize. Congratulations!
In all honesty, I feel that by meeting Dr. Lalanda, I have won. She has great insight into the plight of healthcare on a global scale, namely that of Spain. In this day of austerity and sequesters and challenges to The Affordable Care Act, I worry about the unintended effects on management of infectious disease. Bolstered by what I have learned from Dr. Lalanda, a future post will discuss this, but most importantly--feature her wonderful illustrations.
Thank you to everyone that submitted material.
