  • If a picture is worth a thousand words, a good story is worth many columns of statistics. Stories present ideas, conflicts, and, sometimes, resolution. They have depth and dimension, drama and emotion, making them more memorable than data alone. This belief in the power of the story encouraged us—with support from the Kellogg Foundation—to start the Narrative Matters section of Health Affairs in 1999.

  • In essays with settings that range from the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming, to the mountain town of Leadville, Colorado, to the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, Trudy Dittmar weaves personal experience with diverse threads of subject matter to create unexpected connections between human nature and nature at large.

  • The statistics are well known and staggering. And yet, in many countries the figures continue to worsen. Each year 500,000–600,000 women die in pregnancy and childbirth. In some parts of Sub–Saharan Africa, 1 in 6 women die in child birth, while in United States the lifetime risk is as low as 1 in 84001. HIV/AIDS statistics tell an equally disturbing story of dis- parity. In parts of Africa, over 35% of the adult population — 1 in 3 adults — is infected with HIV 2. The number of women contracting the disease is also on the rise.

Gay and bisexual men living with HIV have an even higher inci- dence and progression of disease. This is similar to the story for cervical cancer.

  • Old Donegal was dying. They had all known it was coming, and they watched it come—his haggard wife, his daughter, and now his grandson, home on emergency leave from the pre-astronautics academy. Old Donegal knew it too, and had known it from the beginning, when he had begun to lose control of his legs and was forced to walk with a cane. But most of the time, he pretended to let them keep the secret they shared with the doctors—that the operations had all been failures, and that the cancer that fed at his spine would gnaw its way brainward...

  • Koppel and Shtrimberg (2006) argue that models based on lexical features can distinguish good news from bad news with accuracy of about 70%. They introduce a simple method for generating labeled examples for sentiment analysis: news stories about publicly traded companies are labeled positive or negative according to price changes of the company stock. The show that there are many lexical markers for bad news but none for good news. The novel idea is the automatic unsupervised clusterization of large amount of news.

  • The latest research shows that the foods we choose to eat—or not to eat—may increase our life span or the quality of our lives. Not a day goes by, it seems, without feature news stories about food and its impact on health. The message that we can reduce our chances of developing cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diseases by maintaining a healthy weight, decreasing the fat and calories in our diets, eating more vitamin- and mineral-rich fruits and vegetables, and getting fit is becoming a familiar one.

  • The field of molecular imaging/nuclear medicine continues to build excitement for the medical community as a whole. To be able to visualize fundamental molecular and biochemical processes in patients in a meaningful way has truly become reality. Of all the available molecular probes and tools it is clear that FDG with PET-CT is one of the true clinical success stories. Very few would have been able to predict the eventual impact of a simple glucose analog as a marker for imaging cancer, hibernating myocardium, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and many other important disease processes....
