> Front of Book > Acknowledgments
The support of our managing editor, Nancy Winter, of Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, is deeply appreciated. The publication of a multiauthored textbook requires a great deal of administrative support; Nancy was always there, unquestioning, and anxious to be as helpful as possible no matter what the issue. Similarly, we note our appreciation for the roles of Kimberly Schonberger, Fran Gunning and Susan Rhyner for project, marketing concepts and production. Ms. Michele Sawicki, Program Assistant in the Arthritis Translational Research Program at University Hospitals Case Medical Center, provided invaluable assistance in coordinating author-editing interplays, and together with Ms. Charu Dutt, Composition editor for LWW, were instrumental in achieving our targeted publication goals. The Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI), the preeminent international organization dedicated to increasing our understanding of basic and clinical aspects of osteoarthritis and fostering guidelines for disease classification and therapy, provided academic and administrative support, and encouragement as to the importance of this fourth edition in furthering knowledge in this field. An educational grant from Pfizer Inc. was instrumental in support of production and publication costs, and in augmenting the availability of the text to clinicians, researchers, and libraries.
