JAMA Patient Information pages are a free source of one page easy-to-understand articles on prevention and management of illness or other conditions. Each article is authored by a clinician working in their specialty with whom a JAMA medical illustrator works to develop an accompanying illustration that helps explain the topic to a non-medical audience.

Access to Patient Information pages is free. No membership to the American Medical Association is required. Use the links below to view articles for each illustration shown here, or search for another topic using the JAMA Patient Information web portal.
