I generally enjoy one or two well-conceived, journalistically accurate "year-in- review" offerings at the end of each calendar year. I suspect that is because those retrospectives tend to be uplifting and affirmative even when the year has had more than a smattering of tragedy. But for some unknown reason, I managed to miss (or unconsciously avoid) all of them at the end of 2012. So, in contemplating the topic for the Chapter President's newsletter, I thought I might construct my own year in review - through the lens of child health providers and advocates, with an eye toward the positive. While I certainly will not presume this offering to be as moving as some, I hope it is at least an accurate accounting, and perhaps even a cause for reflection.
