Dr. Jayna Holroyd-LeducWelcome to spring everyone! After a long winter, I hope everyone will take advantage of the increasing hours of daylight and the milder temperatures to get outside and let nature help rejuvenate your minds, bodies and spirits.

I want to congratulate all department members for what has been a productive academic year. We have continued to face the many clinical challenges that the pandemic has brought, while moving forward to achieve success across the CARE pillars of academic medicine. Please plan to come celebrate with your colleagues at the DOM Virtual Annual Awards celebration on April 8.

After many delays caused by the pandemic, the Department will begin the process of developing a new Strategic Plan to help us achieve our mission to equitably advance health and wellness by cultivating a community of diverse physicians who lead through care delivery, discovery, innovation, education, and knowledge implementation. Please stay tuned for opportunities to participate in the process.

I encourage you to review the spring newsletter for some departmental highlights and important announcements.
