This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics! JLME Editor Ted Hutchinson writes an interesting, brief history of the journal in his Letter from the Editor in this issue-- praising the many distinguished editors and staff who have been instrumental in shaping JLME's focus, maintaining its appeal and quality, and developing its readership base. We are proud of JLME's history and the relevant, scholarly work we've been publishing for 45 years. A big thank you to our readers who keep us going!
We are currently putting the finishing touches on our summer issue, "Covert Medication." Guest edited by Rosalind Abdool, this issue addresses the ethical issues of hiding medication in food and beverages. This is the first time we've done a symposium on this important topic, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts on it. Also we are publishing several great independent articles, including one by our editor-in-chief, Aaron Kesselheim.
Stay tuned for more details about publication dates and online availability!
