President's Message
continued from page 5
5) Proof of concept. Moderna and Pfizer both showed that they could
develop an effective vaccine to a novel virus in only weeks. While the
speed with which these vaccines were developed and tested frightens
the vaccine hesitant, this feat is precisely what gives me hope for the
future.
6) Telemedicine. I have seen my primary care doctor more this year
than most times because: 1) Covid scheduling gave me hypertension;
and 2) It is easy to get an appointment with her. I don't want
to go back to in-person care for conversations that can easily be
accomplished online.
Most likely, not everyone will agree with what I see as the positive aspects
of this challenging year. I know the residents yearn for a return to inperson education. I do as well, but, on the other hand, it certainly makes
scheduling easier on the faculty side. Have a great spring!

As we encourage engagement of our members, we've updated an area on
our site to simply show them the different ways they may have their voice
heard (an ongoing need we've heard through several surveys in recent
years, especially with our younger physicians working in larger systems).
