JAMA: A Cover Without Art

It has become a tradition for JAMA to omit a cover image on the theme issue devoted to HIV/AIDS. Once again we observe this tradition. A Cover Without Art appeared previously on July 10, 1996; July 1, 1998; July 12, 2000; July 10, 2002; July 14, 2004; and August 16, 2006.
JAMA. 2008;300(5):480.

August 6, 2008 , (Vol. 300, Num. 5), is the day JAMA acknowledges the Day Without Art in memory of those artists and performers lost to HIV/AIDS. The HIV/AIDS issue of JAMA is part of its awareness program that acknowledges the Day Without Art by printing a blank cover.
