We have a great first issue of 2022 for you. The issue leads with a timely Review by Dr. Steven Keteyian et al on Hybrid Cardiac Rehabilitation programming. You will also find some excellent original investigations related to Cardiac Rehabilitation, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Peripheral Artery Disease, and Prevention; along with a Commentary, three Research Letters, and an Infographic. I am sure you will find this issue packed with information that will be helpful to both researchers and clinicians.

I also want to welcome two new Associate Editors to our staff, Dr. Joel Hughes and Dr. Dan Stevens.  Both had been active Editorial Board members.

DANIEL STEVENS_HEADSHOT.jpg​Daniel Stevens, Ph.D. holds a faculty position with the School of Health and Human Performance (Division of Kinesiology), and is cross-appointed with the Department of Pediatrics (Respirology) at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada). He also holds an affiliated scientific staff position with the IWK Health Centre (Pediatrics) in Halifax, Canada. Dr. Stevens’ doctoral work investigated the physiological responses to exercise in children with chronic lung diseases. This work was conducted in collaboration with the University of Exeter and the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust Hospital in the UK. Following the completion of his PhD, Daniel continued his research training as a post-doctoral research fellow at St. Michael’s Hospital in the Division of Respirology (affiliated with the University of Toronto, Canada) where he worked with adult patients with respiratory complications in both the pulmonary function testing lab and sleep lab. Dr. Stevens’ current research focuses on exercise, physical activity and sleep in both children and adults with pulmonary disease Dr. Stevens served on the editorial board of JCRP for several years. He is passionate about the value of exercise and physical activity as both rehabilitative and preventative medicine, and would like to see its use become more widespread, accessible, and diverse. As an Associate Editor he will support JCRP facilitating this by disseminating purposeful and scientifically robust research. In this role he hopes to assist with the continued growth of the journal and ensure meaningful and scientifically valid research is distributed to its readership. Dr. Stevens believes JCRP is a powerful resource in the field of rehabilitation and preventative medicine, and hopes to ensure that both its present and future readers are provided with the most current and accurate information on their healthcare practice. Daniel enjoys exercising and being physically active (as much as possible) with his young children.                                     ​​
