Upcoming Goodies from the AAP’s Department of Publications

This is an unabashed ad for the AAP.  Their marketing isn’t running on all cylinders, so I’m giving them a boost by sharing this list of upcoming publications.  Some of these publications are crucial and I don’t want my clients to missed this them.

My goal the rest of this week?  One blog post per day!
