4:3 vs. 16:9 PowerPoint Aspect Ratio
Due to the size of modern television sets and computer screens, presentations have pretty much moved to a 16:9 aspect ratio. (PowerPoint 2013 and above already default to a 16:9 screen format.) Even internal presentations are now more likely to be 16:9, but today it is almost certain that external events, held in professional presentation spaces, will call for the widescreen 16:9 format. Therefore, Children’s has decided to no longer provide templates for the 4:3 ratio format. That said, it is still a good idea to make sure the projectors in your meeting room(s) support it.
The PowerPoint tutorial will provide technical training for you to maximize the templates’ capabilities.

Newsletters are an efficient and effective way to get information to a list of recipients with a common interest, in a consistent format. However, to be truly effective, a newsletter should contain information that has real value for your audience, and be created and delivered on a set schedule (monthly, quarterly, etc.). There are also legal ramifications for sending a newsletter to recipients who do not request it. Get information on these and other things to think about before developing a newsletter, here.
If you decide to proceed with your newsletter, the template (available from email@example.com) offers many layout options so that you can customize it to fit your needs. Remember, the most efficient and earth-friendly way to distribute your newsletter will be to send it by email as a .pdf file.
