Information From the Editor-in-Chief
I am pleased to present to you the May issue of 2022. As always, we have a great batch of articles in this issue. The issue leads off with a timely review of mobile (mHealth) applications that will be of interest to all working in Cardiac Rehabilitation. The six articles in the Cardiac Rehabilitation section cover a variety of topics including patient barriers, intensive programming, virtual programming, international certification, physical activity assessment, and depression symptoms. The two articles in the Pulmonary Rehabilitation section cover environmental correlates of physical activity and effectiveness for patients with lung cancer. The three articles in the Prevention section cover body composition, cardiorespiratory fitness, heart rate response, and atrial fibrillation. Plus, we have an interesting Research Letter and the always helpful Literature Review. I am confident you will find this issue packed with 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 articles with your colleagues whether by traditional email or using our social media platforms of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
I also want to highlight one of our Associate Editors, Ray W. Squires, PhD, MAACVPR, FAHA, FACSM
Enjoy the May 2022 issue.
