This Week In Washington

Editor's Note:

On behalf of all of the contributors and editors of Washington Highlights, we would like to congratulate our Editor-in-Chief Dave Moore on his retirement after 32 years at the AAMC. Among his many accomplishments, Dave created this Washington Highlights over 25 years ago and has overseen its transition from the original facsimile format to the electronic version we use today. He is also responsible for ensuring that there have never been any split infinitives or passive voice in any edition. Congrats Dave, you will be missed!
