    Current Issue: Winter 2021

    Sometimes a physical place has everything to do with health and disease. Unsafe or unstable housing conditions, poverty, and related social inequities are deeply linked with well-being — and that’s equally true when it comes to diseases carried by pest insects. In this issue, a Penn epidemiologist asks: What if the next pandemic is carried by a bug? Other stories in this issue explore place and health from other angles, such as how medical education transforms when forced to pause on some in-person activities. And we highlight the arrival of vaccines against COVID-19 that will help deliver us again to a better place.

    Fall 2020

    In this issue, we grapple with what a contemporary global pandemic means in our lives and work in academic medicine, and with the question of how it changes things. These stories show how COVID-19 has driven our focus on what matters most. That includes public health, surviving the pandemic; creativity, whether in finding unexpected sources of PPE or in using artistic expression to cope with hardship; and justice, driving out longstanding inequities. It includes caring for each other and the compassion that shines on the faces of those around us, even through masks and shields that protect us.
