E-Newsletters

SMDM publishes four E-Newsletters per year, which are a primary communication vehicle for SMDM’s members, its external stakeholders, and others interested in medical decision making. Led by an SMDM member serving as the editor-in-chief, and with support from deputy, senior, and associate editors and staff, E-Newsletters provide important Societal announcements, a diverse array of interesting and timely articles written by Society members, and a view of what is going on in the international SMDM world.  SMDM members are welcome to contact the editorial staff [email: Dana Alden] about submitting content for an upcoming issue. The newsletter archive is open to everyone.
