Topics in Integrative Health Care welcomes unsolicited manuscripts with original research, Grand Rounds, clinical briefs and “fast facts” collections. All submissions are peer-reviewed.

The March 2013 issue of Topics in Integrative Health Care presents articles of interest to clinicians, particularly complementary and alternative health care providers. TIHC Associate Editor, Daniel Redwood, DC, contributes an interesting interview with Brian Berman, MD, a pioneer in integrative medicine. John Ward, DC, MA, MS, and colleagues have done a systematic review of the use by non-Hispanic blacks of complementary and alternative medicine. Ronald D. Williams, Jr., PhD, CHES, contributes a case report which is the first published case linking obesity to the delayed diagnosis of acromegaly. Finally, in this issue we introduce a new feature, Putting Research into Practice, in which the authors review the literature in order to address a specific clinical question. For this first Putting Research into Practice, Jamil Vohra and colleagues develop a comprehensive protocol for treating fibromyalgia with exercise, based on the literature.
 
We invite readers to contribute to Putting Research into Practice, clinical briefs, and Fast Facts, a feature included in every issue. We also welcome concept proposals for Grand Rounds, in which a complex case is presented and discussants from various disciplines give their perspective on treatment.
 
We hope you will find something of interest in the journal and that you will share this with others and encourage them to use this valuable online resource.
