DS blog: Narrative in medicine

Inspired by Radiolab’s fantastic interview with Oliver Sacks to celebrate his 80th birthday, I wrote a post for the DesignScience blog that examines the vital role that description and narrative plays in contemporary medicine.

In a captivating interview, Radiolab’s Robert Krulwich explored Sacks’ career, learning how a motorbike accident led him to switch from studying worms to becoming a neurologist. This turn of fate led to an incredible writing career but, as well as exploring his career, the podcast also highlights why Sacks’ writing has had such a lasting impact.
