In the November 2003 Annual Sourcebook of Medical Associations and Meetings, MM will include, for the first time, a directory of medical education and communications companies. We are offering this new service in response to readers' requests.

Standard listings, which will include contact information, are free. Enhanced listings, available for a fee, will include information on a company's accreditation status, areas of expertise, funding sources, and other details.

We welcome your suggestions about how to make this directory most useful for you. If you have ideas, please contact Editor Tamar Hosansky at (978) 466-6358, or send e-mail to

If you work for a medical education or communication company, and would like to be included in this directory, please contact Directory Coordinator Claire Coupal at (978) 486-0778, or send e-mail to We need to hear from you by April 25.

Thanks for Making My Life Easier!

Dear Editor: I liked the new structure of MM [January/February 2003]. As CME Administrator for a medical education and meeting planning company, it was so nice to have all my reading materials in one place. I read through what was targeted to me and then skimmed through the rest of the magazine. I know my friends in the meetings groups will feel the same way. Nice going!
