With 2009 just around the corner, I extend a welcome to the new editor of the Archives, Rita Redberg, MD, MSc, who begins her editorship in January. Dr Redberg is Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of Women's Cardiovascular Services at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center. In addition to her interest in cardiovascular technology assessment and outcomes research, Dr Redberg has a masters of science in health policy and administration from the London School of Economics in England and was a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Fellow and worked in the US Senate. Dr Redberg is well qualified to lead the Archives, now 100 years old, to an even higher level as one of the world's leading journals in general medicine.
