This website is for anyone interested in conversations about medical rhetoric—as both consumers and contributors of said conversations.

Although there is an overlap between medical rhetoric and medical writing, the focus of this website is on the rhetoric of how we talk about medical care.

Topics of interest may include:

  • the US health care industry
  • alternative medicine
  • traditional care
  • western medicine
  • drug therapies and pharmaceutical manufacturing of information
  • medical ethics
  • healthcare genres
  • medical expertise and audience
  • politics and medicine
  • embodied knowledge(s)
  • visual rhetoric in medical environments
