Child abuse. Elder abuse. Intimate partner violence. The CCDC estimates that more than 10 million adults are physically assaulted each year by a current or former intimate partner.

Shakespeare’s lines from As You Like It have resonated with me during my presidency of the ADEE.

I have met and talked with the presidents of these societies, and I have also had the privilege of meeting with younger faculty. They are eager to share best practices and look at how the same subject can be delivered in a different format whilst achieving the same learning outcomes.
