Pandemic stories

I'm honored to edit the special edition of The Filipino Internist of the Philippine College of Physicians. The issue is called "Pandemic Stories," the second half of the Going Out narratives. In the collection's prose and poetry pieces, internists write about their experiences with the end of the COVID-19 restrictions.

In the introduction, I wrote: 

In this second of two parts of the Going Out issue, we share 11 pieces of poetry and prose written by Filipino internists from all over the country during the slow, painful, and joyous transition to a changed world. These submissions offer catharsis and evoke familiar, relatable memories. They take us to an era so immediate yet so remote, a time when life was more uncertain and the world, with all its strivings and ambitions, was forced to keep still. That was only three years ago.
