Social Medicine in the 21st Century

Curated Collections

PLOS Medicine's October 2006 issue contained a special collection of eleven magazine articles and five research papers devoted entirely to social medicine. The collection featured many of the leaders in the field, including Paul Farmer, Arthur Kleinman, David Satcher, Nancy Scheper-Hughes, Dorothy Porter, and Leon Eisenberg. The Kaiser Family Foundation has conducted interviews with two of the authors of papers in this collection, David Satcher and Paul Farmer.
