Abstract:
Berton Roueché wrote the “Annals of Medicine” feature in the New Yorker magazine from the 1940s until the 1980s. Roueché developed his innovative approach to medical writing at a time when two important transformations were occurring in American medicine: the emergence of clinical epidemiology and the growth of media coverage of medical topics. Roueché was an immensely talented writer and storyteller, and his writings introduced not only laypersons but also future generations of physicians to the art of medicine.
