Welcome to ANC 2017.  With our first issue we highlight the goal of our journal to support the care of high-risk infants and their families from the novice to experienced clinician.  This issue includes a variety of clinically focused articles across all sections of the journal beginning with two manuscripts in Clinical Issues in Newborn Care, one on the diagnosis and treatment of Patent Ductus Arteriosus and one on post-pyloric tube placement.  Please enjoy this issue and consider submitting your own clinically focused manuscript.​
