Dear AJPM&R readers,   

This month's issue of the Journal includes two meta-analyses on challenging clinical issues: recalcitrant plantar fasciitis and severe COPD. The use of new approaches or revisited old approaches is badly needed in both conditions.  This issue also includes a study on a very important topic of gender and ethnic diversity in academia. Enjoy!
