The spring issue of the Chapter Newsletter is alive with some refreshing changes and wonderful additions.
George Wahlert, our new Hospital Library Notes columnist, brings his unique and earthy perspective to the world of hospital librarianship. Elaine Wells, our Advocacy Committee chair, sums up recent activities and provides a close and informative look at focus groups. Maria Astifidis provides a tempting invitation to dine with friends and colleagues at this year's Spring Dinner on April 4, 2002 at the Williams Club.
Our regular columnists continue to contribute interesting and engaging pieces. Read about the notable accomplishments of Chapter members as compiled by Xiomara Cruz in our Kudos column. Pat Gallagher rounds up her picks for the best of the web while Kathel Dunn alerts us to what's essential reading in the library and medical literature.
For those needing to get a handle on the molecular revolution in medicine, Kris Alpi explains what gene chips are and why they are so important. PDA's are hot, and Nancy Glassman our technology columnist, provides an excellent summary of PDA basics, along with bet bets tips. Finally, meet Richard Faraino as we shine the spotlight on our incoming Chapter Chair.
