Mirman, DO '66, also one of my teachers, who wrote a meaningful message above, very perceptively told my class (47 years ago) a very simple but powerful sentence, "Listen to the patient, (s)he is telling you the diagnosis".

Ranieri Joseph Here's a Bible passage I'd like to share with you... personalized FOR YOUR Family

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High (Elyon) will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty (Shaddai). This We declare about the LORD(YHWH): HE alone is our refuge, our place of safety; HE is our GOD (Elohim) and We trust HIM. For HE will rescue us from every trap and protect us from DEADLY DISEASE. HE will cover us with his feathers. HE will shelter us with HIS wings. HE faithfully promises us HIS armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at our side, though ten thousand are dying around us, these evils will not touch us. Just open our eyes, and see how the wicked are punished. If We make the LORD (YHWH) our refuge, if We make the Most HIGH (Elyon) our shelter, no evil will conquer us; no plague will come near Our Home nor Our Family. For HE will order HIS angels to protect us wherever We go. They will hold us up with their hands so We won't even hurt our foot on a stone. We will trample upon lions and cobras; We will crush fierce lions and serpents under our feet! Then LORD says, "I will rescue those who LOVE ME. I will protect those who trust in MY NAME. When they call on ME. I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a LONG LIFE and give them MY SALVATION."

Psalms 91:1-16

Please take care of yourselves first or you will not be able to help anyone and then go out and be the Osteopathic physicians you are trained to be. We learn to use our hands to touch but realize when you're donning PPE, you can touch someone's heart with a kind look, smiling or caring eyes behind that mask and shield or even a gesture. God bless you. I wish you all the very best and am proud to call you colleagues! Regards, Dr. G

Donna Farrell, DO '88 Congrats to the Class of 2020 and welcome to the family of Osteopathic Physicians. Having come of age during the HIV epidemic, I know you will quickly appreciate the fragility of life and the role that you will play. Despite all of the wonderful science at our disposal, sometimes the best we can offer is our shared humanity and an empathetic touch. You are all being thrown into the deep end of the pool but you are not alone....so many wonderful mentors are rising to the occasion. You are also going to be surrounded by all of the heroes it takes to keep our healthcare system working and I hope you will appreciate the maintenance staff as much as the Chief of Medicine. The most important people that you will learn from in these next few years are the nurses. They know more than you at this point in your training so listen to their wisdom , become a part of their team and they will make you better doctors. For those who are married or have families, remember that they still come first! Give them the time and love they deserve and they will always be there for you. I so wish you could have the wonderful ceremony at the Academy of Music , you have all earned it!!!! So go forth and become the best Osteopathic Physicians the world has ever seen....we are all cheering you on!!!!!
