Journal of the American Medical Association covers

JAMA coverThe Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has adorned its cover with works of medical art for 50 years. A JAMA redesign this summer put the table of contents on the front cover and moved the art inside. Apparently, readers appreciated the art but were not sure what was inside.

But for a theme issue on medical education, the editors made room for an image by JAMA senior medical illustrator and GNSI member Cassio Lynm. It pays homage to the poker playing dogs of early 20th-century artist Cassius Marcellus Coolidge. Cassio's whimsical depiction of a teaching hospital patient's room has elicited a request for posters from the JAMA readers. 

Cassio received his MA in Medical and Biological Illustration from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is a certified medical illustrator and professional member of the Association of Medical Illustrators and the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators. His work has received recognition and awards.

Here's to Cassio and more demand for cover art!
