Check Out the March 2020 Issue of JCRP

The second issue of the 40th year of JCRP is now available. There is an interesting commentary in this issue that summarizes the role JCRP has played in Pulmonary Rehabilitation over the past 40 years.  We also have a Guest Editorial about the World Health Organization’s Rehabilitation 2030 initiative. I am sure you will appreciate this Commentary, the Editorial, the excellent Invited Review on frail older adults participation in Cardiac Rehabilitation programs, as well as the other excellent articles in this issue.

JCRP is pleased to welcome two new members to our Editorial Board, Dr. Jeff Christle and Dr. Cemal Ozemek.  Their Bios are available on the JCRP home page in the From the Editor section.
