E-Text Committee Update

Amer F. Samdani, MD
E-Text Committee Chair

The E-Text Committee is continuing to review, revise, and update the existing E-Text chapters on the website. Currently, 14 chapters are undergoing revision in an effort to keep the information fresh and up to date. Two new chapters are being added: “Risk Stratification for Adult Deformity” and “Genetic Prognostic Testing in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis.”

The E-Text and Website Committees are together undertaking the task of improving the appearance and functionality of the E-Text for mobile devices. In addition, we feel that the E-Text is a valuable resource and have offered this resource to several other societies, who may add a link to the E-Text from their websites.

Our current staff liaison is Kathy Blanke, and I would encourage anyone who has any suggestions for improving the E-Text experience to mention them to me or Kathy. Thank you!
