My photograph The End of Democracy is featured in the current issue of the Wisconsin Medical Journal’s treatment of The Impact of Race and Racism on Health. A gallery of artist works is featured in conjunction with this important article in this prestigious publication.
This special issue of the WMJ focusing on how the health of the people in Wisconsin is affected by race and racism was born as a response to the high-profile racial incidents and subsequent protests in the spring and summer of 2020. The editorial staff, with the support of the WMJ Publishing Board and its member institutions, chose to highlight stark racial health disparities among populations in Wisconsin and provide a forum for scholars in Wisconsin to share their work. The issue features original research, editorial content and artwork from more than 60 Wisconsin health professionals, researchers, learners, artists and community members.
I am excited to be a part of such a worthy effort.
