About Aceso:
This journal is named for a Greek goddess Aceso, the daughter of Asclepius and sister of Panacea. Her name comes from the Greek word akéomai, which means “to heal.” She represented the act of the healing process itself. Unlike the other gods, she personified medicine from the patient’s side, a process that involved both the ill and the physician. Rather than a magic cure, personified by Panacea, Aceso was more involved in overall care and the realization that healthcare and well­being took time and the effort of an active process.
We look forward to your submissions!
 
Thank you,
Teng J Peng and Stephen Reese
Editors in Chief
