The editorial board of JAANP sends its sincere thanks to two board members who retired at the end of 2020.  Dr. Mary Jo Goolsby and Dr. Madrean Schober have been invaluable members of our board for many years.  We wish them well as they move onto the next phase of their careers.  They have devoted countless hours to the journal and have had a very active role in leadership of many projects that have contributed to the journal’s success.  ​
