Q REVIEW PUBLISHED
Congratulations to the QUEST program in New York City for publishing
the 12th volume of the Q Review. This volume is “dedicated
to all the members of QUEST: both the founding members, those brave
souls who undertook to create a peer-learning program where our thirst
for knowledge would be unimpeded by strict rules imposed by others,
who signed on to create this organization and to find a location with
an academic setting, and to those earliest members who joined them and
contributed to the building of this organization, and to our newest
members who appreciate what those stalwart pioneers created which endures
to this day.”
