A piece by Patheos spotlighted an article published on AJMC.com, titled “Mental Health Issues On the Rise Among Adolescents, Young Adults.” The article details rates of mood disorders and suicide-related outcomes that have increased significantly among adolescents and young adults, with a possible link to the rise of social media.

An article by Herald-Tribune cited a study published in the January 2021 issue of AJMC® titled “Differences in the Use of Telephone and Video Telemedicine Visits During the COVID-19 Pandemic.” The study found lower use of video vs telephone visits among older, Black, Hispanic, and Spanish-speaking patients amid the COVID-19 pandemic, driven largely by clinician and practice factors.
