Sensible Medicine is a shared substack featuring the voices of leading physicians, scientists and thinkers. We aim to showcase a range of ideas and opinions about all things bio-medicine.

The rules of Sensible Medicine are simple. If an article is signed -the Editors, then all of the people listed below, our editorial board, take ownership of it. If an article is signed by an individual, then they alone take ownership of it. Our goal is a showcase a range of ideas and opinions, and we may disagree with each other. Once upon a time, that was how progress occurred. We hope to return to a vigorous dialog.
