Rockefeller University Press Journals Release Policy
on Author Name Change After Publication
Journal of Cell Biology (JCB), Journal of Experimental Medicine (JEM), and Journal of General Physiology (JGP) announce an editorial policy allowing swift and confidential updates to author names at any time ....
...and for any reason including changes to gender identity, marriage, divorce, religion, or other personal circumstances.
Unless instructed otherwise, requests will be managed confidentially, and the journals will not issue a formal correction and we will not notify co-authors of name changes.
"We see this as a necessary step in respecting the identities of our authors as well as a natural extension of our commitment to policies that promote inclusion," says RUP Executive Director Susan King, PhD.

‘This IS INSANE’: Africa desperately short of COVID vaccine…
"In South Africa, which has the continent’s most robust economy and its biggest coronavirus caseload, just 0.8% of the population is fully vaccinated, according to a worldwide tracker kept by Johns Hopkins University."
"And hundreds of thousands of the country’s health workers, many of whom come face-to-face with the virus every day, are still waiting for their shots."

Angelic. Do give this a listen.
At the age of 30, Nightbirde (also known as Jane) wrote the original song “It’s Okay” about “the last year of [her] life” which has been characterized by her battle with cancer currently residing in her lungs, spine & liver
"By the end of her segment, Jane commented that though she’s only been given a 2% chance of survival that “is not 0%” and she wishes “people knew how amazing it is” that the 2% is something."
"Ahead of her performance, Jane expressed that “it’s important that everyone knows I’m so much more than the bad things that happen to me.”

"How does one honor and protect the sanctity of one’s own Blackness while also giving so much of oneself to a health care system that in many ways continues to dismiss, ignore, and mistreat Black people?"…
"It was a random day just like any other when I suddenly stopped being just a Black person in America. I looked around at the sea of white faces that seemed to fill every space I entered, and I realized for the first time that I was now a Black person in medicine."
"Until fairly recently, it was easier than one might think to minimize the effects of racism on my life. But the more I learned about the physiology of the human body, the more I was forced to confront the degradation of the Black body."

India's resurgence of COVID-19: urgent actions needed…
First, the organisation of essential health services must be decentralised. A one-size-fits-all approach is untenable since the numbers of COVID-19 cases and health services differ substantially from district to district
Second, there must be a transparent national pricing policy and caps on the prices of all essential health services—eg, ambulances, oxygen, essential medicines, and hospital care.

Many of us who have been health activists have been crying hoarse for years about the need to strengthen our health system, focus on public health
Last summer brought policy and public focus to this dire need. One thought lessons were learnt.
Clearly not.
There is INCREDIBLE stress on the health system right now in many parts of the country. Health professionals over worked, burning out, turning positive with families in droves. And sometimes cannot find beds for themselves or their family in the hospitals they are working in.
I have never seen this kind of a situation before. Lots of people reaching out for help. To provide care, advice, help patients and those in medical need is what health providers are trained for. It is what this is unique about health as a profession.
