On a personal note, one of the joys of my position as Editor in Chief of JAMA and the JAMA Network is to meet and talk with individuals whom I have admired my entire academic career. Such was the case in meeting and discussing this article with Lisa and Steven. They clearly had boundless energy and enthusiasm for the topic. I had followed and known of their remarkable work for decades—a powerful team, a couple of enormous intellectual talent. Sadly, Lisa passed away in November 2018. Steven informed us of her death shortly after the manuscript had been accepted, informing us that one of Lisa’s last academic goals was to finish this manuscript and to know that it would be published. It is our privilege to publish this Special Communication1 from Drs Schwartz and Woloshin. We offer our condolences to Steven and to Lisa and Steven’s family.
