Document Type



Brain Candy collects poetry, nonfiction essays, short fiction, photographs, and drawings to shed light on the creative process in medicine, the city of Detroit, and the experiences of health care providers. Features submissions from the School of Medicine (including the Writing Workshop), the WSU Department of English, and the WSU Department of Fine Arts. It also reintroduces the creative efforts of Detroit’s "Future Docs," children ages 6 through 12 with a curiosity for the field of medicine.
