As a mentee and colleague of James (Jim) Dalen, it is with great pleasure and a sense of pride, that I write this editorial. As a Professor of Medicine and my first Chairman of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and Medical Center, Jim hired me to be his first Chief of Pulmonary Medicine on January 1, 1979. Although I had the good fortune to work with Jim for only 9 years before he moved to the University of Arizona, we have periodically kept in touch over the past 37 years, during which time I have continued to be influenced by him. It was Jim who encouraged me to join the American College of Chest Physicians in 1979 because it was a medical society that treated its members as family, and it was Jim who encouraged me to think of society and health-care picture issues and needs when making important leadership decisions and not participate in self-serving silo thinking.
