Vol. 33, No. 1 Winter 2010
Earlier this year, the world watched in horror as the Haitian people suffered through the injury and loss left in the wake of a deadly earthquake — and the medical community, at the University of Washington and elsewhere, responded.
Although specialists of all kinds were needed to treat the wounded in Haiti, primary-care doctors played a pivotal role. They play a pivotal role in our region, too, and you can read more about them in this issue's primary care story. You can also learn more about the revolution that is approaching with advances in translational genomic medicine.
In everything done at UW Medicine — from patient care, to research, to medical education — we rely on our contributors. I would like to thank our readers, especially our alumni readers, for your generosity.
Lastly, I know that our alumni relations team is working hard to plan a wonderful All-School Celebration for us on June 4 and 5, 2010. I hope to see you there.
