Welcome to 2014

Another year has come and gone. 2013 was a good one for M.D. Update. We featured many faces new to our pages, as well as welcomed back many familiar friends.

Personally, I would just like to start the year by saying, THANK YOU! Thanks to those of you who make the magazine possible by participating in interviews, sharing your expertise, and supporting the magazine with advertising dollars. And thanks to those of you who read these pages – a publication is nothing without its audience!

As we begin 2014, there is much to anticipate on the health care horizon, including Medicaid expansion and the continuous working evolution of the health benefit exchange and the ACA. Our goal at M.D. Update remains steadfast: to keep you connected to what’s happening locally throughout the state, in your neighborhood, in your field, and across the board.

While we remain committed to providing you more of content you love, like many of you, we at M.D. Update have a few resolutions for the New Year:

In the coming year, we resolve continue to improve and investigate our digital publishing options. We hear time and again that you enjoy our traditional hard-copy format. But we also know how vital and accessible technology is in our lives. Our goal is to offer you both. If you have any suggestions about the formats you’d like to see or have a particular “digital” skill you’d like to share, please drop us a line.

We also resolve to continue reaching out into the communities beyond Louisville and Lexington, to bring you a more complete picture of the state. Our challenge is finding the contacts in more rural areas. If you represent a community you would like us to feature or if you know someone in a rural community that would make a good story, please let us know.

In this issue, we feature all things “In Your Head.” From psychiatry to neurology to ENT, we’ve tried to give you a broad picture of body systems above the neck, including a unique dual-angle look at military service members and veterans, featuring traumatic brain injury treatment at Fort Knox and PTSD treatment at the VA Medical Center in Louisville.

On page 31, you will find a “working” editorial calendar for the coming year. As always, we welcome you feedback and suggestions on any topic. Our contact information is below.

WISHING YOU A HAPPY, HEALTHY, AND PROSPEROUS 2014!
