New look, same mission.
So … notice anything different?
Well, we certainly hope so. Starting with this issue, we’ve freshened up the design, tinkered with some of our long-running departments and added some new twists in the biggest facelift for CURE since 2004. The look is sleeker, the coverage is broader and we’re beefing up our website. But before you head online, let’s walk through some of the changes.
First up, a stylish, new-look table of contents that organizes each issue’s content in an easier-to-read format. Previews of our most familiar sections in each issue—Diagnosis Cancer, Finding Hope, Moving On and Caregivers’ Corner—are now neatly grouped together, giving these weightier stories the added attention they deserve. Also on the table of contents you’ll notice a more detailed web-exclusive section telling you about articles you can only read at curetoday.com. And as you flip through the pages, be sure to look for which points you toward other information and stories you can find on our website.
Next up, a brand-new section we’re calling First Line. Here you’ll find CURE regulars like House Call and Bookshelf, plus newcomers like The Advocate—a place in each issue that recognizes a patient, survivor or caregiver forging their own crusade against cancer. Best of all, the nominees for each issue’s Advocate will come straight from you.
When we asked in the Winter issue if you knew a nurse who deserves some recognition for his or her inspiration, compassion and devotion, we were impressed by your response. We appreciate everyone who submitted a nomination for CURE’s Extraordinary Healer Award for Oncology Nursing—our new national award honoring an oncology nurse who’s shown extraordinary dedication and care to cancer patients. Watch www.curetoday.com on April 9 when we announce the three finalists, who will be flown to Las Vegas for the awards ceremony along with the persons who nominated them. See page 64 for details. And check out our forums page for information on the Day of Caring Breast Cancer Forums in Denver and Riverside, California, and the Patient & Survivor Forums in Orlando and Chicago.
These are just a few of the improvements we’re making for you. Now turn the page and see them for yourself. And be sure to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you think of CURE’s new look.
