Dear AJPM&R Readers,

This issue of the AJPM&R includes 2 research studies and one review manuscript on topics relevant to the pediatric population. In addition, and of particular interest, is the AAP position statement on the future of the specialty based on an analysis of the current situation in all states in the country. Progress so far, in terms of developing the specialty, has been positive and significant. Nevertheless, more is needed. Increasing the workforce and establishing new educational programs are part of the future. I call the attention of the reader, again, to the new section on evidence-based physiatry. The nature and content of this section is relevant and necessary for the development of PM&R in the US and internationally. Enjoy!
