The September issue of JCRP leads with an Invited Editorial, a new feature we added this year which focuses on one of the articles in the issue. September's Invited Editorial is from one of our JCRP Editorial Board members, Dr. Susan Marzolini, who also provides this issue's summary video. Dr. Marzolini's Editorial explores the question, “Is There a One-Size-Fits-All Approach" for exercise for individuals with peripheral artery disease? The editorial focuses on this issue's Scientific Review by Tremblay et. al., titled “The Effect Of Exercise Modalities On Walking Capacity In Patient With Intermittent Claudication: A Network Meta-Analysis ." I am sure you will find both the Review paper and the Editorial interesting and informative. This issue also includes our standard sections on Cardiac Rehabilitation, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, and Prevention, along with another paper on Peripheral Artery Disease. Finally, the issue also contains five interesting and timely Research Letters.
I am confident you will find this issue contains information that will be helpful to both researchers and clinicians.
As always, I encourage you to use the links on the web site to share these excellent articles with your colleagues, whether by traditional email or using our social media platforms of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
I also want to mention that the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) will take place on September 13 – 15 in Milwaukee, WI. In this issue of JCRP we publish the abstracts of the current research findings that will be presented at the meeting. If you haven't already registered, please consider doing so. Information about the meeting can be found at: https://www.aacvpr.org/Learn/38th-AACVPR-Annual-Meeting . If you can't attend in person, you could consider registering for the on-demand access pass that is inclusive of virtual sessions, recordings, and so much more.
Enjoy the September issue of JCRP.
