CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER,
UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA MEDICAL CENTER
Pamela M. Sutton-Wallace
MARKETING DIRECTOR
Susanna Brent

Caring for one another-it may sound simple
enough, but it has profound implications. This
is what connects our families and communities and brings meaning to our lives. It's also at the heart
of what we do every day at UVA Medical Center.
The most important part of my job as CEO is to create
an environment where team members thrive and are able
to deliver the highest quality of care with compassion and
passion. This issue features a few of those team members,
Pamela
like Erin Foff, MD, who are passionate about their calling
Sutton-Wallace
to serve. Dr. Foff's groundbreaking research at UVA may
one day lead to a cure for a devastating type of dementia that
robs people of their personality. Until then, she provides invaluable guidance to
families facing frontotemporal dementia, or FTD. Linda Brown, whose husband
has FTD, calls Dr. Foff a "godsend to us as a family." (Don't miss Linda's story
on page 52, along with a caregiver's guide on page 20, if you have a loved one
with dementia.)
Inside this issue, you'll also meet a Charlottesville mother of four (page 17).
Her youngest child, Charlie, has a rare form of dwarfism that leaves him unable
to walk, breathe or talk on his own. Although she loves being her son's full-time
caregiver, she knows she can't do it alone. Fortunately, she has help from people at UVA, from a pediatrician who makes house calls to a team of biomedical
engineering students who created a motorized "monster trike" that lets Charlie
better engage with other children.
While caring for others brings meaning and joy to our lives, caring for
ourselves is equally important. I'm the first to admit that finding this delicate
balance can be a real challenge as we seek to meet professional and personal
needs. Inside, learn how you can be a better caregiver when you delegate daily
tasks, get enough rest and sleep, and take a few moments every day to relieve
stress-whether through exercising, meditating or doing whatever helps you
feel more alive and whole.
Yours in health,

Pamela Sutton-Wallace
CEO, UVA Medical Center
