The journal is named for a Greek goddess, 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 Panacea, she represented medicine from the patient’s side, a process that involved both the sick and the physician. Rather than a magic cure or fix, Aceso was more involved in overall care and a realization that healthcare took time (as opposed to Panacea, the magic cure).
