Medical and Health Humanities has officially launched its online publication, which features 22 regular writers and guest contributors from across the country and around the world.
Medical and Health Humanities was founded in 2017 by Arden Hegele, a literary scholar, and Rishi Goyal, a physician. Their mission is to develop conversations among diverse people thinking about medical and humanistic ways of knowing. The publication covers anything that connects medicine with the humanities—critical reading, looking, listening. Interests are wide-ranging: historical précis, new takes on books, investigations into cognition and imagination, and, of course, medical practice. Interested writers can pitch individual articles.

The website also features detailed summaries from previous lectures in the Exploration in the Medical Humanities series, which is co-sponsored by the Center for Science and Society.
