  At the end of an illustrated book written for children in Myanmar, a much-loved village teacher who has planted many trees and a beautiful garden tells his students that the time has come for him. One century ago human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), also known as sleeping sickness, was believed to curb the development of colonial territories. As soon as the cause of the disease was clearly identified, colonial authorities established extensive control operations, fearing an unpopulated continent and a shortage of human labour to exploit. MD/PhD student Nardin Samuel reflects on her first code status discussion with a patient and why she stopped to grieve after his death in this essay, published in the Teaching and Learning Moments column in the May issue of Academic Medicine.. A new episode of our podcast featuring this author reading is now available through iTunes, the Apple Podcast app, and SoundCloud.
