Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to Us

January 1, 2010

time-square-2010-new-year-ballAs we here at Clinical Correlations celebrate the New Year and mark our 3rd anniversary we realize that we have so much to be thankful for.  2009 has been a very productive year for our website.  Our readership has grown over 65% since last year reaching over 200,000 hits this year.  Readers visited us from over 200 countries including a reader from Greenland, the last major holdout.  We were awarded the 2009 Gold eHealthcare Leadership Award our second major award.  Last week Judith Brenner, our associate editor and Clinical Correlations were prominently quoted by Jane Brody in a New York Times article on osteoporosis.  We’re so proud of all these accomplishments

I just wanted to say a special personal thank you to my senior editors-Cara Litvin, Judith Brenner and Michael Tanner without whom none of this would be possible.  Your energy and commitment has kept Clinical Correlations alive and thriving.  And to all the other editors, authors, reviewers and readers, there are too many to name, thank you all so much.  We greatly appreciate all your enthusiasm and feedback.  Your contributions have made Clinical Correlations far better and more credible than we ever could have imagined.  We have big plans and great aspirations for 2010 so stay tuned…Here’s to a safe, happy and healthy New Year for all.
