This is a huge issue of Alberta Doctors' Digest. If we were still printing on paper, you'd need a forklift to pick it up!

We're focusing on the Fall 2018 RF/AGM that took place in Calgary on September 21-22. This is an annual milestone where Alberta Doctors' Digest brings you messages and info about your new president, immediate past president and president-elect. This year, you get to hear their thoughts in their own words as we bring you video clips from the event. We also have some commentary from the president of the Canadian Medical Association about how our two organizations can work together.

In keeping with the RF/AGM theme, the timing is fitting for us to bring you a story about the student representative on the AMA board. So be sure to check out the Student Profile, along with the accompanying podcast interview. The RF/AGM also focused the spotlight on Alberta physicians who've made outstanding contributions to their profession. So be sure to check out the Alberta Shines section where we recognize outstanding achievements in health care. 

All this, plus our regular assortment of feature stories, department columnists and video/audio clips. Might this be the season to abandon your Kleenex and don your hankie? Drs. Sandy Paterson and John Boyd seem to think so. Just sayin'.
