Embracing a New Year and New Approaches

Welcome to the start of a new academic year. There is a wonderful sense of excitement on campus, which is once again bustling with students engaged in O-Week activities and the promise of a new year of learning and growth. With the excitement, we must also acknowledge the challenges that lie before us. Over the past three years, the health-care system has faced unprecedented trials and revealed ever-growing gaps in equity and access to patient care. As clinicians, educators and researchers, we know this, and I know from my own work in the hospital that our patients and their families feel it too.

Giving Back

The impact of donor support begins by enhancing the work of our clinicians, researchers and trainees but then resonates throughout the health-care system and ultimately serves to improve human health.
