In this blog, it is my intention to give you a light-hearted (sometimes inevitably heavy-hearted) insight into the life of a college student who has a little bit of an extra challenge.
In addition to discussing topics that are relevant to disability, psychology, undergraduate training, pediatrics, and medicine, I hope to give you a sneak peek into the life of someone with a congenital and otherwise chronic illness is like.
None of the advice you’ll read here should be interpreted as though I am a credentialed professional, because, though one day I hope to be, that day hasn’t arrived as of yet.
As a psychology major, I will be gaining insights into the lives of children with disabilities and chronic illnesses in various settings, but in compliance with the healthcare privacy information act (HIPAA), you’ll never read about cases seen in my various opportunities. Though there are some medical-bloggers who clean their blogs to be HIPAA friendly, I believe that even still, it’s a violation of patient privacy. In keeping with the policy, I ask that you also keep your comments free of the discussion of patients and their histories, unless you have express permission. Thanks so much for your cooperation.
As always, please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns, and I hope you enjoy what you read!
