I have been the Book Review Editor since 2013.  This position is important for professional development as it allows me to keep abreast of new research in the areas of aging, palliative care, alternative health care, informal and formal support systems, interdisciplinary care, and patient/practitioner relationships. In addition this position affords me the opportunity to have access to new research methods.  I have also been able to support UOPX faculty and students by inviting them to be book reviews for the journal thereby enhancing their publishing opportunities.
