    Author: Kaczorowski J.
    Journal: Pediatr Rev; 2008 Jan; 29(1):31-2. PubMed ID: 18166619.
    Our inaugural story for Pediatrics in the Community was in the January 2007 edition of Pediatrics in Review. Dr Robert Haggerty provided the historical rationale for community pediatrics training (CPT) as part of that feature. Now, 1 year later, we asked Dr Jeff Kaczorowski, Director of the CPTI at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), to describe the present and future of CPT. As the stories in this series have shown, some residents are having wonderful community experiences already and making a difference in the lives of children in their communities. The challenge is how to make such experiences available to all pediatric residents and pediatricians.-C. Andrew Aligne, MD, MPH, Section Editor.
