Thank you for writing concerning your response to the March 2012 cover art. You are not alone, and other women anesthesiologists have contacted me via  email with a similar response. The cover art does not represent the population of practicing anesthesiologists and should not have singled out female physicians. I want to extend my apologies to you and others for my poor judgment in this choice of cover art.
