Pulse-voices from the heart of medicine is a unique e-magazine that sends subscribers (for free!) brief weekly readings of original, medically themed prose or poetry. Pulse is the inspiration of Paul Gross. Its realization has required the editorial gifts of his wife, Diane Guernsey, and the involvement of a truly impressive group of professionals and laypersons.
Many of you reading this already know the feelings of anticipation that stir as you await Pulse’s arrival in your inbox-the sense of curiosity about that week’s piece, and the pleasure of savoring it once it arrives. The selection may be inspiring, heartrending or both. But it is always a joy, because it draws you inexorably closer to the heart-even the soul-of medicine.
