Welcome to the first Web-based issue of Focus! We’re excited about the transition from a printed newsletter to a Web-based newsletter—it’s a great way to make an already valuable resource even better. This format will allow us to add news stories more quickly and will provide us with virtually unlimited space to tell more of the stories that engage our internal audience. A Web version of the monthly newsletter is also environmentally sustainable.

We’re happy to be able to deliver news and information about the institution in a more contemporary and efficient way. We hope you like this new format as well and look forward to your feedback. Drop us a note at Focus@umassmed.edu
