The Pediatric Anesthesiology Meeting 2004 was wonderful and well attended; the weather curse seemed to be intact again (for those of you who didn't go, it was cold and rainy in Phoenix for the first two days of the meeting). Several members of the communications committee have ably reviewed the meeting so those of you who weren't able to attend know what you missed. Thanks everyone for your hard work
There are a lot of exciting new plans for the website and newsletter coming up. I hope by now many of you have had an opportunity to check out the Web Education and the Problem Based Learning Discussions (PBLD) type offerings. There are two so far and we are working on the next one. Our goal is to have three or four new PBLD's each year. Suggestions, contributors and contributions are always welcome! We will also start a new section aimed at the lay public that targets the parents of children who are having proceedures requiring anesthesia. It will be called "Frequently Asked Questions About Anesthesia for Children". Several members of the Communications Committee are already hard at work and the plan is for the new section to be available on the website this summer.
There have been some Bylaw changes that will be on the website as well as more details about the Nominees for the SPA Board of Directors, so please take a moment to review them.
There are the usual wonderful literature reviews by Drs. Cheryl Gooden, Hoshi Khambatta and Tom Mancuso. As always, we welcome comments, suggestions and critiques. Send them to me at Agarwal.Rita@tchden.org.
