The New York Times finds Neuropathologists Worthy

First I'd like to thank the esteemed Adam King (MSII at SIU), a loyal reader, for his comments on my blog entries. Secondly, I'd like to thank Dr. Mark Cohen (Case Western) for reminding me about an article that appeared in the New York Times last year about a neuropathologist. The reporter attended the brain cutting session of Dr. Jeffrey Joseph, then of Beth Israel Hospital of Boston, and assessed the state of neuropathology in modern medical education. It's appropriate that I'm posting this article today since I'll be doing a brain cutting session this morning at 8AM. Here's the link to the NYT article:

Ray Sobel wrote an editorial in JNEN after this article came out, blasting it. I don't have it in front of me.

FYI: there's a typo in the spelling of "Joseph."

One of the periodic advertisements was for a site dedicated to the memory of a GBM patient who fought the disease for five years. That's an amazing survival for a GBM.

The spelling mistake is fixed. Thanks. Regarding that five-year GBM survivor: it makes one wonder whether the original diagnosis was correct. Thanks for your comments!

Put the Abe Lincoln picture back! :D

I could replace the photo, but Peter Burger needs the publicity!
