Serving as ASHT Times Co-Editor with Dianna Lunsford has been the opportunity of a lifetime! When I assumed the role in 2018, I intended to write more scholarly materials and use the ASHT network of brilliant minds to learn and share. The experience has been deeply gratifying. The generosity and insight of the ASHT community and support for our magazine have overwhelmed me. Highlights include asking my upper extremity therapy heroes for their opinions, exploring topics that interest me and giving voice to new therapists and students. 

Does this sound like something you might enjoy, too? If you feel a call to serve as ASHT Times Contributing Editor, please apply! Take this chance to serve ASHT while learning and growing. 

ASHT Times Contributing Editor

The ASHT Times is the society's quarterly online member magazine containing cutting-edge contributions from hand therapists, and news and information from members and staff.

  • Are you a capable writer, connected in the hand and upper extremity therapy community and comfortable soliciting articles from a range of professionals?
  • Are you aware of the latest professional developments, able to think creatively about generating and presenting interesting, valuable content to attract and retain readers?
  • Are you highly organized, able to commit up to 10 hours per month and able to work on deadline?

If you answered "yes," please consider applying to serve as the ASHT Times contributing editor. You will work under the lead co-editors to plan the annual editorial calendar and develop quarterly editions. There is an opportunity for the contributing editor to move into the lead co-editor role following the initial one-year term. Where possible, ASHT seeks to have OT and PT representation on the editorial team.
