As those of you who read the NEWSLETTER’s December 2012 editorial know, after nine years of service as the editor of your NEWSLETTER, Douglas Bacon, M.D. has moved on to assume other challenges, including chairing the Department of Anesthesiology at Wayne State University School of Medicine. Please join me in congratulating Doug for his commitment to ASA and his service to the NEWSLETTER.
Replacing Dr. Bacon as NEWSLETTER Editor will not be an easy task. Some years ago, Doug asked me to serve as one of two (at the time) associate editors. In that position, it was my task to oversee one issue of the NEWSLETTER each year. While serving as associate editor, it has been my experience that Doug made the job of editing the NEWSLETTER look effortless, and it was a true labor of love for him. As my responsibility now changes, my deadlines will be monthly, rather than annual. We’ll see if I have enough to write about in all those issues.
