Message from Jane D. Zimmerman, Ph.D.
PAGNY Chief Communications Officer

I would like to take a moment as we approach the holidays to thank everyone in the PAGNY family for the help you have given me and my staff in preparing the PAGNY Advance each month. This e-newsletter tells the story of the many achievements and accomplishments of the doctors, medical professionals and administrators who make up PAGNY. Every month, I am impressed at the breadth of knowledge and dedication of the PAGNY members. We were proud to note these milestones in our pages over the last year and I am sure there will be many more to come in the years ahead.

I also would like to send my warmest wishes to you and your family for a cheerful holiday season and prosperous New Year.

To everyone's good health!
