Follow-Up on Hospital Malnutrition

In 2015 I published an article in the Columbia Medical Review outlining one of the most horrifying cases of hospital-induced malnutrition leading to death. You can read that article here: https://medicalreview.columbia.edu/article/leroy/.

Years later, malnutrition in hospitalized patients persists. See the following link: https://www.newsdeeply.com/malnutrition/articles/2018/04/04/malnourished-patients-fall-through-the-cracks-in-americas-hospitals

Is your loved-one the next victim?

Morenga-A novel that ingeniously mixes fact and fiction, relevant to this day.

Morenga

Morenga (Uwe Timm,  New Direction Books, 1978) is set in German West South Africa in the first decade of the twentieth century. This historical novel recounts the conflict between the colonial German Empire, and the rebellious Hottentot and Herero tribes, led by the legendary Morenga—the daring and brilliant military tactician, and freedom fighter. It’s an ingenious mix of fact and fiction. Morenga is an intriguing novel I enjoyed re-reading.
