One of the drawbacks to writing under a pseudonym is that when people around you do well, it’s sort of dodgy how you can use the blog to congratulate them publicly. In fact, dear readers might ask: “Why bother putting this up on the blog?” Well, I’m just proud – like a parent – like an anonymous, proud parent.
In my various iterations of adjunct professorship, I get to interact with some really tremendous students in the health sciences – some I even convince to come do some lab work or some literature projects in the name of our national medical research agency. Some do both – and a couple truly kick ass.
So today I just wanted to publicly acknowledge NewMexicoGymnastGirl for her work in my salt mine over the last two years and recently scoring a killer clinical pharmacy residency at a truly superb hospital and major metropolitan medical school.
A tremendously hardworking student gets a well-deserved reward and gender equality in the health sciences makes another step forward.
Pass it on, my friend, pass it on.
