Living with Quiggles, by Cheryle B. Gartley
In 2003, The Simon Foundation held the 1st International Conference on Stigma in Healthcare. Since that event, Ms. Gartley has been very involved on several fronts in the Anti-Stigma campaign.
One of her endeavours is a column written on the website Health Central (http://www.healthcentral.com), called "Living with Quiggles." Below are several of the articles she has written for the column.
Quiggles: A made-up term (by famous sociologist, Erving Goffman) to identify all of the variations and differences of the human body which occur either from birth, daily wear and tear, accident, or illness which can be, and will be stigmatized.
