As Consultant For Pediatricians nears its 100th issue, this seems like a good time to reiterate the promise we made to you 9 years ago when you first started to receive this journal.

As Consultant For Pediatricians nears its 100th issue, this seems like a good time to reiterate the promise we made to you 9 years ago when you first started to receive this journal. Our goal is to provide you with concise, useful, and interactive features that offer new insights into the clinical problems you encounter every day. The editors and the Editorial Board make every effort to ensure that each issue you pick up challenges and engages you with information you can really use in your practice. We hope you think we have kept that promise.

Since its beginning, the journal's online home has been www.ConsultantLive.com. With this issue, this URL is now www.PediatricsConsultantLive.com. If you've already registered to use ConsultantLive.com, you won't have to re-register, nor will you notice any change in the site's appearance or function. If you use a portable device to access the Internet, though, you'll find our site much more easily accessible now. We hope you'll join our growing online community of pediatricians and pediatric providers who want to connect with colleagues and comment on our various features.

If you're new to our Web site, here are some of the highlights:

Children's Health Matters Blog. Each month, Dr Linda S. Nield shares her thoughts on a topic and invites you to comment (see page 105 of this issue for her most recent post).

e-Photo quiz. A new quiz is featured every other month that allows you to test your diagnostic acumen and compare your answers with those of your colleagues (see page 136 of this issue for the answer to last month's quiz).

A Comment Box in every article where you can post comments and questions.

Podcast feature. Have a clinical issue you want to discuss with a colleague? If you think others would benefit from this conversation, we will record it and post it as a podcast. I invite you to listen to my interview with Dr John Harrington, Dr Michael Paul, and Rena Vanzo-“Genetics Testing for Autism: What Can Be Done, How Helpful Is It? as an example.

Now is a good time to check out our Web site and become a registered user. You'll have easy access to the journal's most popular features, numerous photos and videos, and the latest updates from PediatricsConsultantLive.com via its weekly Hot Topics e-newsletter.

We hope that you like what you are reading in print and online. We invite your
contributions and feedback-which you can send via e-mail to linda.geisler@ubm.com or to laurie.martin@ubm.com.

We look forward to hearing from you.
