Abstract

Some aspects of the health of Americans are declining, and family medicine is addressing these ailments. Obesity is one factor, and family physicians provide nutrition counseling. Despite new models such as direct primary care, we have not found an ideal method for providing primary care to everyone in our health system. Not all family physicians report burnout: what is their secret? Scribes: some positives and negatives from one group. Rural America is in need of more family physicians who provide prenatal and natal care, and the proof is in the infant mortality rate. We also have 2 articles on improving pediatric care, and research on the relationship of thrush to mode of infant delivery. We have reviews of new cancer and cholesterol drugs, raising awareness of important knowledge for the primary care clinicians seeing the patients who take these drugs. In addition: tick bites and delayed anaphylaxis—when and how, culture-related skin findings, and helping male perpetrators of domestic violence.
