Human Ties returns with its second issue, the Spring 2019 Digest. The overarching theme of this issue is “personal narrative” and features reflective pieces by medical students, a resident, and faculty. Artwork and photography by members of McGovern Medical School are also showcased, including artwork by dermatology resident Vida Chitsazzadeh, MD; artwork by Anson Koshy, MD, MBE; photography by Travis Smith, a medical student; and a three-paneled art piece created by recent McGovern graduate, Matthew Forster—one of these pieces also appears as the digest cover.

In the Center News section of the issue, Nathan Carlin, PhD, debuts his podcast series Life and Work in which he interviews intellectuals and writers. Carlin’s inaugural interview is with Therese (Tess) Jones, PhD, of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Readers also hear from the McGovern Center’s newest faculty member, Keisha Ray, PhD, and postdoctoral fellow, Timothy Houk, PhD.

Human Ties is edited by Anson Koshy, MD, MBE, in collaboration with student co-editors Margaret O’Brien and Munir H. Buhaya.
