As I hope everyone who has an interest in the health of performing artists already knows, the 30th annual "Aspen" symposium will be held in July. I am using the theme of this year's conference as the title of this issue's editorial. We have a lot to be proud of as we look back on the last three decades, as we look around at what is happening in the field of performing arts medicine now, and as we look forward to the potential that the future holds. From the early 1980s, when Dr. Brandfonbrener decided it was time to focus on improving the health of musicians by organizing the first Aspen meeting, to the first issue of this journal and the founding of the Performing Arts Medicine Association over the next 5 years, the founding of the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science in 1990, and the Health Promotion in Schools of Music initiative in the last decade, performing arts medicine has enjoyed steady growth. As we work to design the future of performing artist health, it may be useful to look at a "sister" specialty that got an earlier start-sports medicine.
