Dear AJPM&R Readers,

This month's issue of the AJPM&R includes three articles on the topic of mobility, functional independence, and aging.  Nothing is more threatening to older persons than the loss of independence that is, too often, caused by the loss of mobility.  One of these articles, by Mortenson and collaborators, is this month's Editor's pick.  This study highlights the importance of self report as well as caregiver reports in the assessment of functional capacity. On a very different topic, an article on education in PM&R discusses a possible consensus on what to teach PM&R residents about ultrasonography; a very popular technique in the field.
