Incorrect References and Wording: In the Special Communication entitled "Use of Race and Ethnicity in Biomedical Publication" published in the May 28, 2003, issue of JAMA (2003;289:2709-2716), there were references cited incorrectly in the text and incorrect wording. On page 2709, in the footnote Ms Kaplan should be listed as a freelance editor instead of a freelance writer. On page 2710, in columns 1 and 2, reference 78 should be cited instead of 77 for information attributed to Boehmer et al. In the third column on that page, in the top paragraph the word "the" should be deleted before "US Census data." On page 2711, the first paragraph of the section "Third Challenge" should read thus: "Writing about race/ethnicity without stigmatizing and without implying a we/they dichotomy between health professionals and populations of color is challenging." On page 2712, at the bottom of the first column, the italicized paragraph should end with references 22, 105, and 113. On page 2713, in the first column the citation to Krieger and Fee should be linked to reference 120 by Krieger et al. Also in that column, in the second paragraph the last sentence should read: "Ungrounded, and often unconscious, assumptions that all poor people are people of color . . ." And in the middle column on that same page, the middle sentence should read: "For example, as Bhopal and others point out,124,125 ‘Asian' is an overly broad and ambiguous term, often used in the United Kingdom to refer to individuals from the Indian subcontinent, and in the United States to refer to individuals with origins in East or Southeast Asia."124
