Ayah Nuriddin, Sasha White, and Graham Mooney examine the entangled histories of racism, violence, medicine, and public health, in “Reckoning with histories of medical racism and violence in the USA,” published in this week’s issue of The Lancet. Congratulations to all three (especially Ayah, as the lead author) for finding broader audiences for their important work in one of the most widely read medical journals in the world!
