We are delighted to report that Dr. Michael LaCombe has joined Annals as Associate Editor for the literary sections of the journal. These sections now include "On Being a Doctor" and "Ad Libitum." Many readers will recall Dr. LaCombe's contributions to "On Being a Doctor" (1, 2). In fact, it was he who suggested that we begin such a section in the journal. His abilities in both writing and medicine should ensure high quality for the literary sections of Annals. He will help us judge submissions and work with authors as well as contribute his own material occasionally.
