In the article Dr. Gawande wrote for the New Yorker, he said that "we are witnessing a battle for the soul of American medicine." His reference to the "soul of American medicine" made me think about the doctors in my own family, who exemplify what I hope the soul of American medicine will turn out to be. And that reminded me of a newsletter my Dad recently sent me. He knows that there are medically-related subjects that interest me, and (less often than he should) he passes something along. Recently he passed along a piece from the Fort Wayne Medicine Quarterly, which (as he expected) I found very interesting. But long after I'd read the article, the cover of the quarterly newsletter stuck with me. Maybe the details could be changed or updated, but this image captures what my own upbringing in a family of doctors always struck me as the soul of the profession.
