“Patients Are a Virtue” in Yale Journal of Humanities in Medicine

The Yale Journal for Humanities in Medicine recently announced the publication of Patients Are a Virtue.

According to Howard Spiro, M.D., Editor, “to be a pediatrician, you have to have a soul of the old ‘circuit rider’ to maintain your sanity, an interest in people more than in disease. This book gives brilliant witness to just that kind of humane medicine that attracts those who want to comfort as much as cure.”

YJHM acts as a clearinghouse for manuscripts in the broad area of humanities in medicine. Interested readers may wish to browse the selection of writings at this fine site.
