Public Health Articles by Micheal Specter

To all my Public Health friends, here's a link to some amazing articles from the New Yorker, mostly about HIV. Micheal Specter used to write for the magazine, but I don't think he does anymore. If one of the articles is on a topic of interest to you, you should read it. He gives so much information, interviews all the right people important to the field. It might be a good place to start for ideas, etc. They aren't peer reviewed Public Health journal pieces, and that can actually make them more interesting and easier to read. I'm just throwing this out there for everyone.

Here are just some of the articles that would interest Public Health students:
