I hope that this first newsletter of 1999 finds you all well. I fear that it may find some of you frustrated in the wake of the recent changes in health care. Those timely issues are the topic of our first newsletter of the year, which was edited by Alex Johnson. I think that you will find the contributions useful. They set the tone for the 1999 continuing education component of our newsletters that will address service delivery issues over the treatment continuum from acute care to long-term rehabilitation.
Our newsletter theme for 1999 is “Moving into the Next Millennium,” which sounded great last June when we picked it, but I’m afraid it already sounds somewhat overused and trite. However, the information for the newsletters remains vital—the papers are intended to help move us forward in our work with neurogenic communication disorders. Carmen Vega-Barachowitz, Clinical Director at Massachusetts General Hospital, will be the issue editor for our June newsletter that will address issues in acute care service delivery. The September newsletter will explore the concept of staging treatment for disorders as they change. I will be the issue editor and the contributions will include motor speech disorders, progressive aphasia, and dementia. Finally, Roberta Elman, President and Founder of the Aphasia Center of California, will edit the December newsletter, which will address the issues related to long-term care.
