Well, I'm taking a break from Kidney World; I may be back. I have written a new book dealing with Transgender Medicine, and am focusing on this fascinating aspect of health care. Seattle has the third largest population of trans folks in the US - and I have been doing trans medicine for eighteen years.
I love the new book. Thanks to the paintings of Jacqui Beck, it's gorgeous. But it's also packed with practical information needed by transgender youth, health care providers, educators, social workers, etc.
After three books dealing with kidney disease and dialysis, I'm pretty much out of the closet as a writer! Check the new book out on I love to speak for groups, so please let me know if I can be of help.
Thank you for your support of the Kidney Blog. I so wish Steve were here to welcome the new book - he'd absolutely love it!
Take care,
