We hope you enjoy the third issue of Rubor: Reflections on Medicine from the Wasatch Front. We would like to express special thanks to the Division of Medical Ethics and Humanities at the University of Utah, as well as the University of Utah School of Medicine Alumni Association for providing financial support for this publication. Without their generous donations we would not have been able to publish our current issue.
We started Rubor three years ago to provide a space for students, health care providers and patients to explore the art of healing and medicine through prose, poetry, photography and visual art. Our goal was to create a dialogue about the challenges and triumphs of health care and to encourage creative expression among people of the University of Utah health sciences.
Rubor greatly appreciates and depends on contributions from our community. To view additional submissions that were published online, please visit rubor.med.utah.edu.
Thank you for reading, and we hope to hear from you!
