For the longest time, we have written, read, shared, and re-read high altitude knowledge and experiences published herein. This time too we shall commence this literary journey the same as the previous years, but not quite. 
For the very first time, the coordinators and the newsletter editorial team here at MMSN have decided to expand the vision of this high altitude medicine delight further. From this year onwards, the MMSN newsletter shall include, along with our beloved printed Annual Edition, two e-newsletters as our Fall and Spring Editions. The e-newsletters shall comprise concise relevant experiences, current affairs, and advances in the field of high altitude medicine.
