The DCSA Annual Business meeting was held Thursday, October 13, 2022. The evening included remarks by Dr. Evan Kharasch, the editor-in-chief of Anesthesiology. Dr. Kharasch spoke on the role of the journal within the anesthesia community, and the need for peer-reviewed science to lead our way into the future. He focused on continual improvements to both the content within and the presentation of Anesthesiology with increasing use of infographics, summaries, and a podcast to more easily disseminate information in modern ways. He also focused on the improvements from the authorial and editorial sides, and increased relevance of the journal to overseas markets.
We also had elections for the DCSA Executive Committee for the next terms. Congratulations to our new members, and an expression of gratitude to those continuing their service.
