A Note from Editor-in-Chief Steven Keteyian

As we head into the new year I am reminded of the high level of expertise and quality work provided by our feature and department and column authors. Each one an individual that is committed to advancing the profession by sharing their knowledge and experiences through the written word.

True to form, the feature articles and columns in this issue are certainly no exception. With New Year’s resolutions just ahead, Whitney M. Sweat, M.S., R.D. and Melinda M. Manore, Ph.D., R.D., FACSM, write about the timely topic of “Dietary Fiber: Simple Steps for Managing Weight and Improving Health.” Their article is followed by a very practical read authored by Matthew King, M.Ed. and Dixie Stanforth, Ph.D., entitled “The Movement Based Program Method: Adapted For Selected Populations.” In this article, they focus on older adults, patients with peripheral artery disease, and those with metabolic syndrome. Finally, addressing the potential interaction between running and osteoarthritis, Leigh-Ann Plack, DPT, discusses the topic “Can Running Cause Osteoarthritis?”

As you can see, these articles represent a diverse and broad selection of topics, which is consistent with one of the journal’s objectives to provide education across a full spectrum of health and fitness-related topics. To further this objective, I also draw your attention to the department and column articles authored by experts in their respective fields.

In closing, I trust you enjoy reading these articles as much as I do and please accept my sincere best wishes for a very happy and healthy 2015!


Sincerely,
