Year 2015 has been a year of elections and changes in the country. We expect positive changes to many issues in the country and we expect that this will rub off on our profession as well.
The baton has changed in some positions in PSN NEC including the Editor in Chief.The good work of previous Editor in Chiefs continues because as Men of Honour We Join Hands. Some projects and ideas are already in the pipeline, these will be concluded while new ideas to move the journal forward will be actualized.
The elections in the first quarter of the year slowed down many things because the populace wanted to see how the wind will blow before making any serious decisions either in business or any other serious activities. This has affected the publication of the first edition of the journal this year. We thank God that there was peace during and after the elections. Handing over is around the corner too and we pray for peace.
The journal is still forging ahead with continuing education which this time around is on responding to symptoms in dermatology and ophthalmology.
Viewpoint is about Mentoring with benefits to both mentor and mentee. Healthy living too is still on course.
