From the Editor

We have been planning a re-design for a couple of years, but the pandemic put things on hold. But now, after months of hard work and planning, we are proud to offer our readers a new look and feel (in the print version), as well as some new contents.

New Look, Same Great Content (and More!)

Did you notice anything different about this issue? If so, you have a keen eye, for this is the first issue of the all-new and improved, redesigned Trends! We have been planning a redesign for a couple of years, but the pandemic put things on hold. But now, after months of hard work and planning, we are proud to offer our readers a new look and feel, as well as some new content.

Notebook and Inside AAHA are now one section, The Scoop. A new section, “5 Questions for a Specialist,” will feature a specialist each month, and then we will have a new last page called “In Practice.” This page will feature a useful handout or reference page, with a QR code so you can download and share it as well.

All this is in addition to the superb, award-winning content that you expect each month in Trends, which this month includes a look at a wonderful new group, Natives in VetMed; the role of technicians in telehealth; a primer on artificial intelligence; and the revealing results of an AAHA study on staff retention.

The Trends Employee of the Month Contest—Everybody Wins

There will still be $500 in gift cards to claim each month, courtesy of CareCredit, to be divided between the nominator ($100) and the winner ($400). Intrigued? You should be—it’s free money! Go to aaha.org/EOTM to nominate one of your coworkers.

Coming Next Month

Next month is Dental Health Awareness Month, so we’ll have some information on maintaining your dental tools. We will also explore the new technology of liquid biopsy and investigate some of the difficulties that people with disabilities face in the profession.

As always, let me know what you think at trends@aaha.org.
