Issue 21 / 2003
Dispatches from inside the American health care system
This issue features writers, both patients and doctors, exploring the current state of American health care. In “Notes from a Difficult Case,” winner of the Creative Nonfiction Best Essay Award, Ruthann Robson, herself a lawyer, debates the potential effectiveness of her own medical malpractice suit. In “Burden of Oath,” Linda Peeno tackles the medical ethics of HMOs. These and nine other authors lend a personal perspective to problems in our health care system.
