JBJS is pleased to welcome F. Alan Barber, Nicholas Giori, Terence E. McIff, Lauren Tatman, and Lee Zuckerman as new Associate Editors to the Editorial Board of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.
JBJS Associate Editors serve 3-year terms for the Journal and have a history of providing exemplary reviews. They are instrumental in adjudicating manuscripts with disparate reviews at virtual Editor Workshops and play a vital role in ensuring the quality of JBJS peer review.
This post is the second in a month-long series profiling the 2023-2026 JBJS Associate Editors.

The OTA supported my attendance at the AAOS/OREF/ORS Clinician Scholar Career Development Program in 2019. This was an opportunity that highlighted the significance of high quality, meaningful research in orthopaedic surgery from faculty that have had a major impact on our field.
I recently picked up one of my favorite novels to re-read: The Alchemist.
