Milbank Memorial Fund Announces New Editor-in-Chief of The Milbank Quarterly

Howard Markel, M.D., Ph.D., became Editor-in-Chief of The Milbank Quarterly on October 1, 2013, succeeding Bradford H. Gray, Ph.D., Editor since 2000. Announcing this appointment, Christopher F. Koller, who became President of the Milbank Memorial Fund on July 15, said that Dr. Markel is “superbly qualified to maintain and enhance the Quarterly’s role as a leading international journal of health care policy and population health.”

“I am deeply honored to be chosen to edit the Quarterly, a journal of distinction and excellence since its founding in 1923. With the growth of medical care expenses and the ongoing challenges to the health of populations and communities, the need for thought-provoking, peer-reviewed, and socially relevant interdisciplinary research and writing in the health services field will only grow in the coming years. The Quarterly will be one of the key places to find such critical information for health care policymakers and scholars as well as population health practitioners,” Dr. Markel said.

The Milbank Memorial Fund is pleased to announce the publication of Lead Wars: The Politics of Science and the Fate of America’s Children by Gerald Markowitz and David Rosner, the newest title in its joint series with the University of California Press. In this incisive examination of lead poisoning during the past half century, Markowitz and Rosner focus on one of the most contentious and bitter battles in the history of public health. They detail how the nature of the epidemic has changed, highlight the dilemmas public health agencies face today in terms of prevention strategies and chronic illness linked to low levels of toxic exposure, and ask fundamental questions about the practice and future of public health.
