This issue is my last issue as Managing Editor for Perspectives on Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders. I have enjoyed serving as Editor over the past 3 years. I’d like to welcome Teresa Brobeck from New Mexico State University who takes over the editorial reigns for the next 3 years. She and her committee are already busily working on the Perspectives issues for 2008. Topics for next year’s Perspectives are Dysphagia and Aging, Update on Dysphagia Treatment, Pediatrics, and Physiology and Pharmacology.
