MODERN HEALTHCARE has promoted Ron Shinkman to Los Angeles bureau chief. Shinkman joined the magazine's reporting staff in 1996. He can be reached at 213-651-3710, ext. 148.
In addition, Editorial Researcher Christopher Gray has been named coordinator of the World Wide Web sites of MODERN HEALTHCARE and our sister publication, Modern Physician. You can reach him through our Web site (http: www.modernhealthcare.com) or dial him up the old-fashioned way at 312-649-5421.
Gray, who joined the magazine in 1996, will continue to edit our annual meetings guide. Meetings '99 will be published Nov. 23.
Gray has another reason to celebrate. In his spare time, he composes and arranges the lively dance sounds known as house music. His first CD, "Fish & Luvconfushun," was released earlier this month by London-based Fragmented Records.
