    in Writing

    UPDATE ---- JAMA PROVIDED FREE ACCESS TO BOMBACK'S ESSAY FOR A LIMITED TIME!! --- THANK YOU JAMA!


    Think you don't have time to write? Andrew Bomback is a physician and writer (with toddlers and a wife) but he's still managed to write a novel, a textbook, many academic papers, and first-person essays.


    On Sunday, February 15, we'll discuss his two nonfiction essays, "I Know That Elmo is Not a Child Molester" and "Errands" published on Full Grown People and in JAMA, respectively. "Errands" reached an audience of 300,000 readers and received an amazing response.


    In both essays, I get a strong sense of Andrew's voice and we'll talk about how he conveys that voice in different genres.  If you'd like to get a copy of "Errands," here is the citation info: Bomback A. Errands. JAMA. 2006; 295(7):731-733. doi:10.1001/jama.295.7.731.


    Download the essays, read them, and be ready to call in with your questions about writing, life, and the writing life!

    Dr. Noah Gilson – Photographer & Physician

    in Radio

    What came first – the photographer or the physician? In the case of neurologist Dr. Noah Gilson, it was photography. At the age of 14 he was given his first SLR camera with black and white film that he processed in the basement darkroom of his home. He won some local photo competitions and honed his skills in a high school photography course. He considered pursuing photography professionally but decided to become a doctor. When his darkroom was stolen out of his college apartment, he focused all attention on pre-med studies and photography was on indefinite hold. But after a 25 year hiatus during which he became a doctor, husband and father, photography returned to Dr. Gilson’s life. The darkroom was soon a thing of the past as he quickly became enchanted with the superiority of digital photography in every aspect of image production. Gradually he filled the walls of his home and office with photos. He uses his photos to calm patients nervous about being in a doctor’s office or in the hospital. His Healing Images are intended to teach people to slow down and take a break from their frantic lives. They invite us to examine at our surroundings and to marvel at the miracle of the mundane. The underlying theme in Dr. Gilson’s photos is the concept of mindfulness which encourages us to treasure every experience and all of its sensations. Many neurologic patients are very ill and the news Dr. Gilson gives families is sometimes grim. Calming pictures placed on the wall of the family consultation room provides him the courage and composure to say what needs to be said as sensitively as possible. Dr. Gilson’s photos are in local galleries and permanent displays at Monmouth Medical, Jersey Shore, and Riverview Medical Centers. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

    Doctor discusses spirituality and miracles in medicine

    in Spirituality

    Born 10 weeks premature in 1952, Dr. Davin entered the world with a twin, both in profound respiratory distress. His parents were advised to find a funeral home and he and his twin brother were placed in 100% oxygen for 10 weeks. He was baptized "In Periculo Mortis," in danger of death, but, as he likes to say, he and his brother "fooled the bastards" and David went on to admire the pediatrician that frequently cared for him as a young boy, the only person worthy of admiration in the dark, blue collar, white ghetto in which he was raised, most notable for its alcoholism, bigotry, and domestic violence.


    At around the age of ten he came upon a crowd of people three deep standing in the street around what he soon realized was the dying, bleeding victim of a multiple stabbing. People did nothing but wait for an ambulance as the man slowly died. Watching the life leave the man and spill onto the street with every beat of his heart, young Davin tried to work his way through the forest of grown up legs that repeatedly stopped the young boy who had taken off his belt to use as a tourniquet. The grown ups refused to let the child through, even though they just stood around helplessly. The man died before the ambulance arrived. David knew that if they would just get out of his way he could help the man live. Now, some fifty years later, he is still asking the endless crowd to get out of his way so he can do what he knows he must do.
