Vital Times 2020 - 5

some reprinted from the CSA Online First blog and
others brand new. They range from the fascinating
history of anesthesiology in this country and in
California to cutting edge advancements in the
Technology Section. I hope you find them as
enjoyable as I did and take the time to read them.
The CSA is proud to introduce two new special
committees this year: the Taskforce on Global Health,
led by Ana Crawford, MD, and the Committee on
Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, aptly named
JEDI, led by Edie Odinakachukwu, MD! There is a
section dedicated to each of these new committees,
with compelling and poignant articles. Please join me
in welcoming these two very important additions to
the CSA.
In this past year where everything has been turned
upside down and we have learned new ways to help
our patients, ourselves, and our communities, I want
to send a special thank you to my new conference
companions, at least one of whom is always by
my side (or on my lap) during any and all virtual
meetings, conferences, or presentations. It has been
wonderful spending more time with my furry friends,
but I really miss seeing my human colleagues.

Hopefully 2021 will provide us more opportunities
to mix, mingle, and learn from each other in person.

The other wonderful silver lining of this pandemic
was the additional time I was able to spend with
my offspring, who are at an age where friends are
significantly more important than parents. In addition
to hiking more and going on restorative drives,
we were also able to volunteer together at a local
food bank.

" We're born alone, we live alone, we
die alone. Only through our love and
friendship can we create the illusion
for the moment that we're not alone. "
- Orson Welles
Even at the worst and most terrifying times of 2020,
I have never felt alone. The support of the CSA
leadership and members has been invaluable in
helping me get through this challenging year, and
I hope it has been of help to you as well.
