Pause, Reflect, and Begin Again

Pause, Reflect, and Begin Again

Through these selected videos, Department of Medicine staff members take a moment to pause and reflect on how they replenish their energy at work and in their personal lives. They look back on particular experiences in the department that, for them, signify positive change.

Their responses embody the very spirit of renewal: recognizing what has been lost in recent years, looking ahead to 2023–24 with a sense of optimism, and expressing a will and readiness to begin again.

We invite you to join our staff in enacting a collective renewal.

Together, we

  • acknowledge the cyclical nature of life, from loss and mourning to growth and celebration;

  • balance reflecting on the past with hope for a brighter future; and

  • recommit to our shared mission of research, education, clinical care, and community partnership.
