2023-Summer From the Editors

Letter from the Chief Editor

Dear Readers,

As you may have noticed, you didn’t receive a CE News Spring issue. Instead, you received our 2023 Annual Proceedings Report, filled with plenary session summaries, oral abstracts and poster presentations. If you didn’t have the opportunity to attend the 2023 meeting in Nashville either virtually or live, than we hope you will take a moment to review this report. Presently, the report is available to members and the public to download. In other news, I am delighted to announce two additions to our editorial team. Ginny Jacobs, PhD, a past SACME president and well-known in the CME/CPD community, has agreed to serve as Co-Chief Editor.

We begin the issue with our International CME/CPD Update with a summary report of a unique workshop presented by Helena Filipe and Mila Kostic during the annual AMEE international conference this past September in Lyon. The workshop focused on the value of weaving professional networking, potentially enhanced by technology, and creating structured conversations at the workplace as pathways to develop professional development opportunities and creating value to the organization.

From the Editor – Summer 2022

Spring has faded and most of us are living in the dead heat of summer.  It’s hovering near triple digits here in Texas where I continue to cobble together another issue of CE News.  I’m certain we would all prefer to be swimming on the Amalfi Coast or lunching at a small village restaurant in the Burgundy region of France. Whatever your dream may be, our editorial team has assembled a good variety of practical articles that might help you relax and pass the time on your next flight out of town.
