In this week's feature, we present a few highlights from our subscriber survey last summer.

This edition of OHPE is, we regret, the last, though hopefully not forever. We must take a hiatus as we are currently unfunded. The website will remain as an archive.

If you’d like to partner with Health Nexus so that OHPE can resume publication, or if you would like to fund OHPE, please contact

A huge thank you to all our 7800+ readers for your interest over the past twenty years (and more than a thousand issues)!
