AJOB is proud to have Kayhan Parsi as our new Associate Editor. Kayhan has worked with AJOB closely for the last three years serving as its Book Review Editor. We chose Kayhan, in part, because he knows AJOB well and because he is well connected to scholars throughout bioethics, particularly in the fields of medical professionalism, global health, and medical humanities. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Kayhan here at AJOB for many years to come.
