Food is integral to life. It meets basic human needs for growth, development and function. It is also important for the functioning of societies, allowing people to make social linkages and distinctions. It plays a role in multiple aspects of life and is a subject of interest and inquiry in multiple disciplines including agriculture, anthropology, geography, humanities, law, nutrition, psychology, public health, public policy, and other natural and social sciences. With food security and environmental sustainability becoming increasing global concerns, there is an urgency to educate the next generation of leaders with strong interdisciplinary foundations.

A Call for Visual Submissions
Two and-a-half years ago we began carrying visual images in Pulse.
How has that worked out?
For an answer, have a look at our Visuals Slide Show. I myself am thrilled with the energy and spirit that these images have added to Pulse.
Twice a year we issue a call for more visual arts submissions. That time is now. We're looking for photographs, drawings, paintings, collages, sculptures--any work that can be captured in jpg format and that offers some perspective on health care.
If you're a visual artist, a patient, a family member or a healthcare provider, anyone with works you'd like to share with the Pulse community, then Justin Sanders, our visuals editor, would love to hear from you.
See our Submissions Guidelines for details on how to submit. And please pass this along to artist friends and artistic colleagues who might be interested.
I hope to see your works in Pulse.
With warm regards,
