We welcome our readers to the current issue of the Newsletter (Vol 1, No 2). We would like to announce the coming on-board of Dr. Ergeba Sheferaw as an Assistant Editor. As a physician trained in radiology, Dr. Ergeba will bring in fresh perspective to our growing publication. Dr. Zelalem will assume a new role as an Associate Editor, replacing Professor Mulugeta, who will remain in an advisory capacity on our Editorial Advisory Board. The newsletter would like to congratulate our Editorial Advisory Board member Prof. Mulugeta Gebregziabher on his recent selection as a Fellow in the American Statistical Association. 

In this issue, we cover various areas. Dr. Lydia Tesfa explores physical exercise as part of good measures for general health maintenance. She focuses on Martial Arts to illustrate her point. Dr. Lisanework’s article highlights issues related to translational research, particularly in Ethiopia. He delves into the disconnect between research and practice. He also provides key pointers to remedy the situation. Dr. Ergeba provides a unique perspective on inward-looking paradigmatic approach to healthcare in Ethiopia, especially as it pertains to cancer care. Dr. Kinfe makes poignant remarks on how children should be molded from early life health-wise, socially and psychologically to be all-rounded citizens.

Our Profile Section features the superb career of Dr. Salahadin Abdi in the hope that it will inspire rising clinicians. On a personal note, I met Dr. Sal back in July of 2015 when we both were invited speakers at a p2p-sponsored Higher Education Summit at African Union in Addis Ababa, and at a workshop in Bahr Dar University Medical School soon after. I recall a modest, polite and dynamic gentleman who presented excellent talks at both venues. It is only appropriate to present Dr. Sal’s career in detail in this issue.

Dr. Enawgaw Mehari, Founder and President of p2p Inc, was kind enough to send us news items on various recent activities of p2p, following a trip that a group took to Addis Ababa and other locations. Members of this group presented papers on aspects of comprehensive cancer care in Ethiopia and other issues.

Finally, we would like to call upon our readers both in Ethiopia and abroad to share with our newsletter any news, experiences, reviews, opinions, commentaries and research snippets on health topics.
