The editors and publishers of Current Medical Diagnosis & Treatment (CMDT) wish to dedicate this 62nd edition of CMDT to Harriet Lebowitz, in recognition of her more than 20 years of service as our Senior Project Development Editor. Harriet, who is retiring with this edition, has been the major organizing force responsible for the annual production of CMDT.
In particular, we would like to express our gratitude to Harriet for her dedication in making CMDT the world’s number one best-selling annually updated medical textbook in print, online, app, and abbreviated formats (Quick Medical Diagnosis & Treatment). Among other innovations that Harriet has contributed, she most recently envisioned and helped create CMDT’s “Year in Review: Key Clinical Updates” feature.
Throughout many changes over the years, Harriet has been a constant positive presence. Her familiarity with the text, editors, and authors as well as all the arcane details of publishing helped guide our journey to an on-time publication each year. We will all miss working with Harriet very much and wish her the absolute best in her retirement.
