Dear AJPM&R Readers,

This issue of the AJPM&R includes several interesting and valuable research articles.  I would like to highlight, however, the "Analysis & Perspective" piece on the topic of disaster rehabilitation.  This topic has been getting significant attention because natural disasters result in a significant number of survivors with injuries, many with permanent disability.  Although emergency teams have a long tradition of preparedness for such disasters, for the most part, that has not been the case for rehabilitation teams.  The authors discuss the importance of considering rehabilitation interventions not only in late stages post-disaster but also early in the missions.  Disasters, local and distant, can be of different magnitude and rehabilitation professionals should be prepared to participate and contribute to the preservation of life and function.
