His fans say that he’s saved their lives, and detractors say that he’s the gateway drug to the alt-right. Who is this psychologist-philosopher whom so many of us had never heard of two years ago, and what does he really believe?...

Medical school faculty and active physicians in the US are predominantly white (64% of faculty and 56% of physicians) and male (59% of faculty and 64% of physicians). And while Black Americans comprise 13% of the US population, they make up only 4% of the active physician workforce. These numbers clearly illustrate that providers do not reflect the diversity of the communities they serve, and research has suggested that this can have a negative impact on patient outcomes.

Local news, in crisis before the pandemic, is now facing a cataclysm. Advertising has plummeted. Print has no market. And consolidation has driven record cuts. At stake is not just jobs, but the access to critical trustworthy information for millions of Americans — just when they need it most.

In this digital age, many of the most pressing questions about free speech arise in cyberspace. And increasingly, the answers to those speech questions are defined in board rooms, rather than court rooms. What comments on Facebook constitute hate speech?
