IOM News Alert:  Perspectives

The IOM is pleased to announce the launch of our new Perspectives section on This new category of IOM products provides leading experts the opportunity to offer their observations and opinions on innovations and challenges in health and health care. Perspectives are not reports of the IOM or the National Research Council, and therefore are not subjected to their review processes.

If you’d like to be notified when a new Perspective is posted, please sign up on our email update page. Enter your name, email, organization type, and check New Perspectives under News Alerts. This will not affect previous alerts for which you have signed up; it will simply add New Perspectives to your list.
