A medical journal is perhaps the most tangible symbol of the values and aspirations of medical professionals. A change in the leadership of a journal is a good time to take stock of the environment and to think carefully about the future. Today's health care environment contains many challenges. Among these are the opportunities and threats presented by knowing an individual's genetic endowment, the aging of the population, and the conflict between the public's high hopes for medical care and the high cost of fulfilling those expectations. These challenges may be grist for future editorial ventures. Now, I write just to report my thoughts about Annals as I begin my tenure as its editor.
