Editor's Note
David Parham, MD
My computer screen just went blank after a most satisfying Virtual Fall SPP Meeting, and SPP history has been made!  The meeting was quite successful from all aspects – financial, attendance, scientific content, and camaraderie.  It was ably abetted by President Gino Somers and Administrator Jordan Burghardt, as well as a very able Steering Committee that included Linda Ernst, Debra Heller, Chandra Krishnan, Cristina Pacheco, Charles Timmons, Jason Jarzembowski, Sanda Alexandrescu, Jeff Terry, Emily Burch, Jordan Burghardt, Patricia Ferchland-Bingham and Rebecca Pierucci.  Thanks to the miracle of virtual computing, we had record attendance for a fall meeting – 234 attendees.  Thank you all for a job well done!
