Nothing that I have done this year could have been accomplished without the superb support of APA’s Governance Office, led by Margaret Dewar. She and her staff are just the best. I have had the rare opportunity of working with two medical directors, and I thank them both for their assistance. You should know that the rest of the APA staff, with many of whom I have worked for years, is just terrific too. And, of course, thanks are due to my family, especially my wife, Dede, who traveled with me much of the year, learning to run her life and her career from the road. The impact on our kids was less than it might have been had we not recently become empty nesters, but the stress of never quite knowing where their parents were ("What city are you in this weekend?" was a popular way to begin an e-mail home this year) could not have been easy to bear. My greatest regret is that our son Yoni’s graduation from Columbia will coincide exactly with our annual meeting in San Francisco, and so we will need to deploy the family strategically on both coasts, with no one getting to both events.
