Hello readers,

My name is John Runge and I am the new Editor-in-Chief of Historia medicinae. I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to enter this role, and delighted to work toward improving our quality, audience, and reach. As a journal directed for students captivated by the convergence of history and health, we fill a unique niche in the academic community. As Editor-in-Chief, I hope to reinvigorate HM 's mission to engage graduate students and faculty interested, like myself, in the history and perspective of medicine by initiating some infrastructural changes to the journal. Among these will be the inclusion of public health topics (to be viewed from a historical angle), restructured article formats (details to come), and a new home base (The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill). These exciting developments speak to our energized leadership and its commitment to sustaining HM for many years to come. Thank you for your continued readership and I look forward to reading your submissions!

Sincerely Best,
John S. Runge
