A few of the recent pieces I’ve liked:
Sara Rosenbaum at the Health Affairs Blog: Planned Parenthood, Community Health Centers, And Women’s Health: Getting The Facts Right
Laura Ungar at USA Today: Study: Needle exchange policy prevented HIV
Maryn McKenna at Phenomena: Germination: Tickborne Diseases: Widespread, Serious, and Taking us by Surprise
Elissa Strauss at Longreads: The Lost Summer
Oliver Sacks’s opinion piece “My Periodic Table” appeared in the New York Times in July, just weeks before he died of cancer. Since then, past writing by and about him has gained attention. I enjoyed reading Steve Silberman’s “The Fully Immersive Mind of Oliver Sacks,” from WIRED in 2002. All of Sacks’s New Yorker pieces are here, and The Atlantic has assembled a collection of some of Sacks’s best writing and interviews from multiple sources.
