As I mentioned in my last post, I have been adding new links to “My Links List” to highlight medical literary journals that I appreciate. This week, I was very pleased to have a poem in Pulse—voices from the heart of medicine, which is one of my personal favorites.
Pulse is an online magazine for sharing stories about illness and healing from the patient and healthcare professional points of view. It is also a community, where you can meet others interested in the humanistic side of medicine.
You can subscribe to Pulse for free using this link and receive emails when new issues are posted. You get an email about once a week, so it’s not a burdensome addition to your (probably overflowing) inbox. And I like having a reminder on a busy Friday to take a moment to pause, gain some insight into someone else’s powerful experience, and think about what my work means.
Here is a link to the poem, which you can also find in my list. Enjoy!
