A Columbia University cardiologist calls out a lack of diversity in respected medical journal editorial boards. His analysis demonstrates that as of October 2020, of fifty-one editorial board members at the New England Journal of Medicine, just one was Black and one was Hispanic, four were East Asian, and two were South Asian. Of the forty-nine editorial board members at JAMA, two were Black, two were Hispanic, three were East Asian, and one was South Asian. No board member at either publication was Native American.
