I want to take this moment to thank everyone, my faculty housestaff and student writers and editors, for all their help and hard work that has made Clinical Correlations such a success. I especially want to thank 2 people: Cara Litvin, my executive editor who has truly been the backbone of Clinical Correlations. Her energy, technical know-how and superb editing skill have taken our website to the next level. Without her Clinical Correlations would undoubtedly have died an early death. I also want to thank Marc Triola whose patience dealing with me while I fooled around with fonts, colors, pictures and so much other minutiae while building the site has been extraordinary. His commitment and support of the blog has been instrumental to its success. Thank you both.
Clinical Correlations is all about challenging you, our readers, to understand that captivating aspects of internal medicine abound everywhere-in the news, on the wards, in the clinic and in our daily conversation.. So make sure you take your daily dose of medicine from us. Stick around, I guarantee it will be worth the ride.
