Introduction Inspired by my experience as a nurse, then a doctor, and now as a writer for kids, I have become curious about how medicine and health are reflected in children's lit, from picture books to YA. What are our beliefs, as seen in our literature, about what heals? What attitudes are revealed about caregivers,illness and hospitals? I am a 2010 graduate of Vermont College of Fine Arts. I have a middle grade novel currently in revision. My adult play,"Complications," about a man who encounters the wall of silence in a hospital, was read publicly on 1/27/13 by the Armory Square Playwrights in Syracuse.
