Medical Writing Editing Regulatory Matters

Volume 27, Issue 3 - Editing

Regulatory Matters


Nearly everyone remembers the childhood tale of The Wizard of Oz. Four characters searched for something they believed magic alone could create, only to find that they already possessed it. The image of the Tin Man comes to mind, who believed he did not have a heart because he was made of, well, tin. Although his metal chamber lacked a physical beating heart, his metaphorical heart was larger than life.
