Peggy Leatt, PhD
Sixteen years ago today (it's December 11, 2012) Peggy Leatt approved our plan for the journal Hospital Quarterly. She simply said: “Looks Great.” That also meant she would begin her tenure as editor in chief. Peggy quickly assembled an editorial advisory board with many of its members still serving us in that role today. Her position unofficially transformed into a larger function that included the continued development of new journals, a letters programs, healthcare rounds, our monthly early morning breakfast briefings and ‘e’ services that were all designed to contribute to “better health.” We are indebted to Peggy for applying brilliance, subtlety in effecting change and unwavering support for an unknown publishing house with nothing more than an idea and some feeble research on foolscap. With one small suggestion that research was finessed and turned into a document of consequence. She was and is our protagonist and intellectual powerhouse with high standards and -- not the least of it -- an academic with a penchant for taking risks. We will have several related announcements in the coming weeks. Look for them. Add your comments, write firstname.lastname@example.org
