From the Editors

One year ago Bill and I were excited to debut the online version of the New York-New Jersey Chapter Newsletter. At the same time, we were all grappling with the aftermath of possibly the most significant event of our lifetime. This issue, our final issue as newsletter editors, one year later, pays special tribute to those who remember 9/11. To those who lost friends and family, our thoughts will always remain with you.

As Bill and I welcome the new newsletter committee, we would like to thank all who took the time to offer feedback, comments and praise this past year. We would especially like to thank all of the columnists who responded so quickly to our call for contributors and whose contributions made this one of the most useful, engaging and innovative newsletters around.

In this issue:

  • Joanne Jahr provides news about NLM and RML listservs
  • One year later  . . .  9/11
  • Kathel Dunn keeps us up-to-date with what we need to read professionally In the Literature
  • Dorice Vieira presents Kudos to Chapter Members
  • Nancy Glassman's Technology Report offers tips on how best to communicate with your IT department
  • Paul Barth lists new Chapter members
  • Elaine Wells delivers an Advocacy Committee Report
  • Richard Faraino sets an agenda with From the Incoming Chair
  • Kris Alpi delves into the science behind the medicine in Brave New World

Thanks for your continued support and all best for the New Year.

Please call or e-mail with your comments or questions.
