Focusing on the Year Ahead

Vincent's Two Cents:

It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you ... No! Not tonight. And no! We do not invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair as the dining room proudly presents your dinner! Yes, the song links image Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast has filled my brain and interfered with my thoughts as I try to proudly and with great pleasure convey to you the exuding enthusiasm pouring out of all the articles in this June Issue of the ISHLT Newsletter. Yes, I am biased, I am the editor of this newsletter with a talented group of writers. But I truly believe you will agree, we have tremendous momentum and energy as we share our messages with you and as we march on to 2014 in San Diego.

Be our guest and enjoy this newsletter.
