New England Journal of Medicine Race and Medicine webpage

 

The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) has recently created a topic page which highlights select articles dealing with race and medicine. The articles have been pulled together with the hope of improving research, public health, patient care and professional training:

“The Race and Medicine collection reflects NEJM’s commitment to understanding and combating racism as a public health and human rights crisis. Our commitment to antiracism includes efforts to educate the medical community about systemic racism, to support Black and other minority physicians and aspiring physicians, and ultimately to improve the care and lives of Black and other minority patients” (NEJM, 2020, para. 1).

Additionally, the NEJM is cosponsoring four webinars in the virtual series, The Impact of Skin Color and Ethnicity on Clinical Diagnosis and Research, which will run from October 28–December 2. The topic of the first webinar is Structural Racism and Racial Bias in Medicine, and will take place on Wednesday, October 28 from 1:00-2:15 PM ET. Registration is available here.

PLEASE be mindful to not leave library books in study rooms, study carrels, and on tables/chairs. We ask that you place them on one of the many book-trucks at the end of the aisles. And no matter how tempted you are to re-shelve a book after you are done using it, putting it on the nearest book-truck for one of our stack assistants to re-shelve will ensure that they are correctly re-shelved by their call-numbers for future use. THANK YOU!

The Case Files Collection from Access Medicine has recently had a number of updates, which makes this a good time to review this useful resource. With cases from Basic Science, Clinical Rotation, and Post-Graduate, the collection now includes Case Files Podcasts found in the global navigation bar under “Podcasts/Audio.” They are produced by the primary author of the series, Dr. Eugene C. Toy, MD and highlight key concepts from the cases found in the collection in short downloadable episodes.

Below is an overview of the Case Files series if you are not familiar with the collection:Case Files Info

Our Graphic Medicine collection has been steadily growing with a number of new releases, and some old favorites that we’ve recently acquired. The HHSL Graphic Medicine collection can be found on the 4th floor across from the Library Service desk. Since the section’s inception in the summer of 2018, the collection has grown to include titles dealing with a wide range of healthcare issues; including, addiction, Alzheimer’s, bipolar disorder, breast cancer, down syndrome, epilepsy, LGBTQ health, OCD, and Parkinson’s disease. Graphic Medicine divulges the lived experiences of patients dealing with illness, as well as personal accounts of the challenges faced by medical professionals.

Below is a list of recent titles added to our collection:

I had the pleasure of discussing the value of Graphic Medicine as a format in healthcare communication at the Charleston Library Conference this past fall. The poster presentation is available at this link.
