“Writing as Rehabilitation: Creativity’s Role in Survivorship”
Diana M. Cejas, MD, MPH is a pediatric neurologist and faculty of the Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Through her clinical work, she cares for youth with a broad spectrum of developmental disabilities with complex neurological and psychiatric comorbidities. She seeks to improve health outcomes in this population as they transition to adulthood and serves as Principal Investigator of studies that explore their unique experiences.
Since surviving cancer and a stroke during her residency, Dr. Cejas has devoted much of her career to patient advocacy and improving communication between healthcare providers and the disability community, particularly young disabled patients of color. She shares her own story and other commentary on disability and health via essays and other nonfiction. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in medical journals including The Journal of the American Medical Association and Neurology; literary magazines including The Iowa Review, Ecotone, and Catapult; and anthologies including Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century and A Measure of Belonging: Twenty-One Writers of Color on the New American South. She is currently working on a collection of essays that describes her life as both physician and patient.
