I am pleased to have a mixed-media piece included in the June 2022 issue of American Journal of Nursing (AJN). "American Drug Formulary Exclusions" appears in the Art of Nursing column.
Along with the other articles is a perceptive column about the reality of self-care for nurses by Emily Stice Laker. I also appreciate the tribute to the late Dr. Paul Farmer which quotes his 2018 Harvard Gazette interview. Farmer points with precision to our problem with access to medicines (and healthcare in general). It is an attitude that steers policy and individual decisions: "We are socialized for scarcity for other people." He asserted that everyone has a right to first-class healthcare.

Stunning. If only we could see this on the evening news and scrolling online headlines instead of ads that try to pitch the notion that drug companies need a break! They do not! The American public does!
