The December edition of the Journal of Healthcare, Science and the Humanities usually includes
selected articles from the Annual Public Health Ethics Forum co-sponsored by the National
Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care, Tuskegee University (National Bioethics
Center) and the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity at the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC). Other peer-reviewed articles, a commentary and reflections
from an elders’ panel are included to commemorate National Minority Health Month, which
occurs in April every year. Since 2015, the National Bioethics Center and the CDC have cohosted
this forum. This year the forum focused on elders and was held in September during
Senior Citizens Month instead of April, which limited the time needed to translate and
transform the excellent presentations into peer reviewed articles. Thus, there are no original
articles from the 2018 Public Health Ethics Forum published in this edition. However, the
Program Agenda from the forum is included, as well as a narrative from an extraordinary elders’ panel that highlighted the entire forum.
The Spring 2018 Journal of Healthcare, Sciences and the Humanities is primarily derived from peer-reviewed articles on the Public Health Ethics Intensive Course topic, “Untold Stories of Healing for Social Justice.” Here, scholars from several different domains, respond to unique areas like the environment, ethics, science, education, racism, faith and collaboration, raising questions about context and social justice.
This 2017 Fall edition of the Journal of Healthcare, Science and the Humanities includes selected articles from the May 2017 Public Health Ethics Symposium entitled, “Optimal Health for Her Whole Life.” The symposium was held May 19, 2017 on the main campus of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, GA. The symposium was intentionally scheduled in May, Women’s Health Month, and focused on the health of women and girls.
The 2017 Spring edition of The Journal for Healthcare, Science and the Humanities (JHSH) includes peer-reviewed articles focused on the theme, “Healing the Family through Social Justice” which derived from lectures presented at the 2016 Public Health Ethics Intensive. In addition, a critique is offered within the context of the intersectionality of health equity for people of color, impoverished communities, corporate profits and ethics.

The December 2015 issue of the Journal of Healthcare, Science and the Humanities is a special Booker T. Washington commemoration issue.

Washington’s death, his leadership in organizing Negro Health Week and the intersection of the health disparities of African Americans from 1915 to 2015 in the United States, “50 years since the enactment of the Civil Rights Act and 50 years since the beginning of Medicaid and Medicare legislation.”
