NEJM launching a monthly Perspective series
July 10, 2020
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the National Academy of Medicine, NEJM is launching a new Perspective series: A Half-Century of Progress in Health: The National Academy of Medicine at 50. The series highlights the Academy’s enormous progress in health and biomedical science, with notable effects on patient safety, the AIDS crisis, and human genomics, among other fields.
Each article features an Academy member’s expert synopsis of a breakthrough field of medicine, including historic milestones and future expectations.
The first article, “Four Decades of HIV/AIDS — Much Accomplished, Much to Do,” authored by Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., and H. Clifford Lane, M.D., was published in the July 2, 2020, issue. The series is expected to comprise a total of 12 articles to be published monthly in the first issue of each month.
