A Message From the Editor

As we head into the the heart of summer, there's plenty of interesting things to watch in the benefits world. June is Pride Month, so keep an eye out for plenty of coverage on diversity, inclusion and discrimination. We're also keeping an eye on the future of the primary care physician, the ongoing explosion of prescription costs, the decline in opioid prescriptions and plenty more. Happy reading!
