Letter from the Editor
Our Fall 2021 issue is about the post-COVID era. Specifically, life after the pandemic alarm bells stop ringing and COVID no longer causes widespread lockdowns. The issue questions what a return to normalcy means in an age where normal has been changed forever. On one hand, the "post-pandemic" world is an exciting return to reality, but not without a host of ethical challenges in the medical field.
In this issue, you will find pieces on telemedicine, vaccine ethics, medical multilingualism, among other fascinating topics.
The pandemic has highlighted existing disparities in the healthcare system and beyond and posed new questions as we find ourselves in unfamiliar territory in our transition back to “normalcy.” We hope the pieces in our journal help you gain new insights into the ethical challenges of our "post-pandemic" world. From everyone on the DMEJ team, we thank you for taking the time to read our journal and hope you find the pieces as compelling and thought-provoking as we do.
