Explorations in Ethnic Studies
After the 1988 Conference, several members expressed an interest in an issue of Explorations in Ethnic Studies which would focus on ethnicity and health. We were fortunate to receive a number of submissions in this area, and this issue includes an article by Ella P. Lacey which reports on pica and the ethnic and cultural implications of the use of pica as well as the limited reporting of that use. NAES member Jim Schnell wrote us after he returned from China and sent along the essay on Chinese medicine. Jim's essay is a personal response to recent information about an ancient tradition and might prompt further study about this collaborative view of medicine. We believed that his insights would be of interest to our readers. Another essay on medicine will be published in the July issue.
