A Message from Andy McPhee

Dear ,

Greetings, hope this note finds you well. I’m writing today to tell you that as of September 30, 2016, I’ll be retired.

I’ve been in publishing now for 30 years, and I’ve enjoyed nearly every one of them. It’s time now to start a new phase of life, and I’m excited by the prospects. I’ve met a huge number of people over the years and have had many close relationships, relationships that I cherish greatly. Always with change it’s hardest to say goodbye to so many wonderful people.

I wish to thank everyone who has “liked” my page and posts. I am deeply indebted to our relationship. As I say goodbye, my colleagues at F.A. Davis want you to know that they’re here to support you and continue that relationship. So, from October 1 onward, I ask that you take your questions, comments, and jokes to the F.A. Davis team. Like or follow the F.A. Davis company page for a chance to win a complete set of our Medical Assisting products!

I am sincerely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you, and I wish you nothing but success, good health, and constant happiness wherever life may lead you.

Warmest regards,
Andy McPhee
