All those associated with Health, United States would like to give their special thanks to

Dr. Kate Prager

who is retiring this year. In her capacity as Special Assistant for Health, United States for the past 13 years, Dr. Prager's painstaking review of everything from the validity of the content to the formatting of footnotes has ensured that all aspects of the book are accurate and accessible. She has performed the work of analyst, technical editor, manager, government liaison, and every other possible role involved in producing a book of this scope and has done so with skill, dedication, and patience. We would like to express our gratitude for all she has contributed to the publication over the years and wish her well in her post-Health, United States life. She will be greatly missed.
