THIS ISSUE of The Journal of the American Medical Association focuses on the health of black Americans, as do this MEDICAL NEWS & PERSPECTIVES section and the LEADS FROM THE MMWR (Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report) of the federal Centers for Disease Control. In addition to an expanded report from the Centers for Disease Control, this week's MEDICAL NEWS & PERSPECTIVES section presents information about the health of black Americans from other federal agencies in four special reports that begin on page 197.
