Chris Atkins Godack, Managing Editor

The managing editor has traditionally served as the soul and spirit of Johns Hopkins Nursing, and so we welcome Chris Atkins Godack, marketing and communications director at the school, to that role. She assumes it at a very important time for the publication as we work to serve an increasingly web-based readership while maintaining the relevance of a printed periodical that has served the nursing community so well through the years. We look forward eagerly to her input and guidance.
