THE WINTER ISSUE IS NOW AVAILABLE



The Winter 2022 issue of The Journal of Lancaster General Hospital offers a clinical primer on this year’s outbreak of monkeypox in the United States and includes resources for providers and their patients on monkeypox vaccination. Case reports focus on medical ethics and refractory atypical HUS-TTP, while additional articles include a photo quiz on helminthiasis and a perspective on health care reform.

The cover photo is a colorized scanning electron micrograph of monkeypox virus (orange) on the surface of infected VERO E6 cells (green). The image was captured at the NIAID Integrated Research Facility in Fort Detrick, Maryland and is licensed under CC BY 2.0.

EARN CATEGORY 2 CREDIT FOR READING JLGH

American Medical Association Category 2 activities consist of self-directed learning or courses that have not been through a formal approval process. According to the Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine, this includes “learning experiences that have improved the care [physicians] provide their patients.” Reading authoritative medical literature — like JLGH — is one such activity. 

  • More information and the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine CME Reporting Form are available here.
  • Physicians can also log credit through their eeds account online.
