On behalf of the SNMA Publications Committee, it is our upmost pleasure to present to you the Fall 2017 JSNMA Issue: Addressing Racial Bias in Medicine. This is the first of our quarterly publications since my appointment as Editor-in-Chief, and I am truly humbled by this opportunity to feature the courageous voices of our SNMA members who undertook this controversial yet delicate topic. Their diligence and creativity, combined with that of my team, have taken my vision for this issue to unexpected heights. From opinion pieces to research articles, it provides powerful insights regarding the influence of racism throughout the many dimensions of medicine.
