     MedPro Month has long been relied upon by device and diagnostics industry
 professionals for its "inside" view of trends and market opportunities in
 several core clinical areas.  For the last ten years, MedPro Month has keyed
 primarily on assisting its clientele by providing the market intelligence
 necessary to form business development, marketing and selling strategies
 within the United States.
     "Beginning this year, to better serve our customers, MedPro Month will
 extend its reach deeper into international markets," said Mary A. Steinman,
 Managing Editor.  "For example, coverage will be expanded for high-demand
 issues in non-domestic markets, including developments in reimbursement,
 pharmaceuticals, the provider arena, and cost and disease management.  Also on
 tap is a new monthly feature spotlighting U.S. and internationally based
 emerging or 'start-up' companies and their innovative technologies."
     A new Associate Editor, Dona Watson, has been appointed to oversee MedPro
 Month departments covering issues that shape the worldwide healthcare
 industry, including Financial Scoreboard, Provider/Cost Trends, Acquisitions
 and Alliances and the newly branded "Global Perspectives" department.  Watson
 was formerly publisher of Current Issues in Medical Reimbursement and editor
 of BBI's Monitor of Technology Assessment and Reimbursement.
     Along with augmenting its editorial content, MedPro Month has undergone
 significant format enhancements, including updating its logo and changing over
 to a four-color, magazine-style layout.  In addition, MedPro Month will step
 up its publishing schedule starting in April 2001, producing 12 issues per
 year instead of 10.
     In addition to broadening the magazine's scope, brightening its appearance
 and increasing its frequency, MedPro Month has announced that it will accept
 advertising beginning May 2001.
