With the publication of the first issue of TR, I am making the transition to pediatrician. Like all good pediatricians, I will strive to be a wise, caring, and gentle soul, able to offer advice, encouragement, and reassurance to the parents as the baby grows. I will be a source of calm and cheerfulness and will help the baby’s parents if ever they should call.
So who, in this expanding and bustling family of ACR publications, are the proud parents? I think, dear reader, that you know the answer. The proud parents are you. This is your magazine, truly a publication of rheumatologists, by rheumatologists, and for rheumatologists. It will grow and prosper all the more as ACR and ARHP members participate in its upbringing, support its development, and, most importantly, become loyal and avid readers.
