My wonderful mentor, Gary Kreps, the father of Health Communication, and advisor for the study, has confirmed that yes, in fact, it was accepted! 😉
I’m close to being accepted to a prestigious medical journal, Frontiers, with my first academic article with just a few revisions to go. Or I’m already accepted pending revisions. I’m not quite sure with the verbiage but either way it is exciting! Sorry guys, I am doing five research projects this semester, teaching three classes a week, and taking three PhD classes. This is all way more important than my poetry and novels and teaching and research are my main passions while creative writing is more a hobby I do in my spare time, which I do not have a lot of this semester! Drawing has also unfortunately taken even more of a backburn. All is quiet on the literary front, my novel is with Daniel Lazar, Andrea Somberg, Hilary Harwell, and Thao Le, but I might be hearing back from them in a few months! I’m doing really exciting research projects on:
- Suicide prevention and survivorship communities on Instagram
- Neonatal health and climate change amongst D.C. Medicare patients
- Graduate and academic mental health
- Climate change and renewable energy
- Perceptions of air pollution and climate change
Anyways, I’ll post the link if my article comes out soon as Fronteirs is open access. Off to revise!
