2022 Public health stories #8

Curated public health stories for this week from my reading shelf for Week 8 of 2022.


Such a profound loss to public health and especially the global health community- Dr Paul Farmer will always be a shining light to all of us!

NY Times obituary here.

Also a wonderful profile of Dr Farmer by Dr Jha in The Atlantic.


This farewell note from Jane E Brody also is an excellent summary of how health columns have evolved over the years.

Read it here.


“Millions of Americans who are immunocompromised or living with disabilities and chronic illnesses feel they are being left behind as society moves on after omicron.”

Hear their stories.
