The school's magazine, Vital Signs, is published for and distributed to alumni, faculty, staff and friends of Boonshoft School of Medicine.
From the Editor
Welcome to the new Vital Signs. I hope you like what you see here. In upcoming issues, we hope to bring you enlightening articles and keep you abreast of all the great things going on in the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine. We also want to put you in touch with your fellow alumni and introduce you to the students and faculty of today's Boonshoft School of Medicine. We asked our readers what they wanted through focus groups and Web surveys, and we poured over award-winning alumni and mass-market magazines to see what works and what doesn't. The result of our research is in this issue. We want to hear from you. Tell us what you like and what you don't. Give us your opinions about the stories you find here. We'll print highlights from the letters we receive in upcoming issues of Vital Signs. And, please, stay in touch. We want to hear your stories so we can share them with our readers.
