During her internal medicine clerkship, Kathy reflected upon the use of eponyms in the medical lexicon after meeting a patient with de Quervain’s thyroiditis, a condition named after the physician pictured above. Her essay, entitled “By Any Other Name,” won the Medicine Science Award for Outstanding Essay from the NYU Department of Internal Medicine. I’m happy to announce that earlier this month, Clinical Correlations, the peer-reviewed NYU Langone online journal of medicine published her piece!

Until next time,
