The Fellowship Program of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is celebrating its 10th birthday this year during the 25th anniversary of AANP. For many years, leaders within the Association were determined to recognize the many members of AANP who make outstanding contributions to health care and the NP profession. Influential members created, in 2000, the Fellowship program of the AANP that was designed to recognize members involvement in healthcare clinical practice, research, education, and policy. Over the following decade, 222 members' of AANP have been given the distinction and honor of joining the Fellows.
This virtual issue of the journal is a tribute to these leaders and a celebration of their accomplishments. To read the complete editorial introduction to this virtual issue click here

Introduction: We are pleased to provide a virtual issue of the Journal of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (JAANP) devoted to the subject of obesity. As a result of the National Institutes of Health and the United States Public Health Services efforts to standardize the criteria for diagnosing and treating obesity in adults and children, obesity became a widely recognized health concern in both the popular press and professional literature at the beginning of the 21st Century. Publications in the JAANP focusing on obesity reflected this national trend. Between January 2000 and January 2009, 46 articles about obesity were published in the JAANP, offering a wide range of perspectives on this modern day affliction. The importance of obesity in clinical practice and nursing education has not abated, and we have compiled 15 of these articles in a virtual compendium to facilitate access by readers with an interest in the problem of obesity. The collection of articles highlights milestones in nursing's obesity scholarship over the past 10 years and serves as a guide to the next decade of work needed to improve the care of obese patients.
