Abaton was Des Moines University's student-produced literary journal.
Produced from 2007 through 2015, Abaton was a creative outlet for DMU students, faculty, alumni, and other healthcare professionals.
Abaton explored aspects of health care that often elude academic disciplines. It is these often unspoken sentiments of the provider and patient that form a bridge to an evidence-based profession. By allowing these stories to be heard, we give voice to the most fundamental aspect of medicine - humanism.
