Articles of Note: December 2023 Edition (Peace Out)

Good morning from San Diego, where I am waiting for a flight back to DC after a few days teaching here for the Army. One more work trip (down to Huntsville) next week and then I can call it for 2023. With almost a third of the year spent on the road, it was a busy, but satisfying one. I am glad to put it to bed, though.

We end with one last Articles of Note, our monthly waltz through the peer-reviewed literature. It’s short(er), but sweet, with plenty for readers. I am particularly interested in reading Oke’s article on improving forensic genital exams for trans patients, and Kane’s series of articles (with various co-authors) in the Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine.

As I sign off for the year, a heartfelt thank you–hundreds of you continue to show up here every month to read this nerdy, niche-y little site, and many of you have been doing so for years. I love the connectedness I have to so many of you through this space. It gives me incredible joy when this site is the impetus for real life introductions, which happens with mind-boggling frequency. So thanks for being part of the FHO community, happiest of holidays to you and yours, and peace and health in this new year.

Happy reading friends. Jen
