Last Word

From January 2011 to December 2013, I was a regular columnist for the most widely-read medical newspaper in Australia, Australian Doctor.  I wrote humorous articles for the Last Word column, located on the back cover of the publication.  The column was discontinued at the end of 2013 and replaced with advertising space.
