The End of Medicine” also explores the future of healthcare through the lens of technological advancement, offering thought-provoking insights on the transformative potential of artificial intelligence, epigenetics, and personalized medicine.

In the article, Dr. Levy says he envisions a future where healthcare moves beyond the traditional paradigms of rehabilitation and intervention to embrace a proactive stance focused on prevention. This shift represents a transformation to a traditional approach, where the medical field would focus on intercepting diseases before they emerge instead of reacting to them.

Since its start in 2001, Traffic East, founded by Mark Dellas, has pushed the conventional bounds of publishing. More than just a magazine, Traffic East blends visual and literary expressions to foster intellectual curiosity and artistic exploration and showcase diverse forms of art and writing.
