Best Wishes for a Wonderful Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is upon us, and that gives a moment to pause and reflect. It has been a challenging year, no doubt, in so many ways. Certainly, there is so much for which we can be thankful.
As a group of caregivers in all our various capacities, we have helped literally thousands, and perhaps millions, of lives directly by caring for patients with COVID, with GI diseases and indeed with all medical conditions, and all the time with extraordinary compassion, empathy and expertise. As a group of scientists, we have helped develop testing, treatment and preventative strategies that will save countless more.
We have given so much to our patients, our colleagues, and our communities, and we continue to do so. We can be very grateful for the opportunity to have helped so many this past year.
We can be also be thankful for our action this year to advance and rededicate ourselves to the difficult work of rooting out racism and inequity from our world.
We in the gastroenterology community and the ACG Family are fortunate to work with exceptional people every single day, and so on this Thanksgiving 2020, it is certainly worth taking a moment to reflect on how grateful we can all be for the relationships with our GI colleagues and for the great care we give to our patients each and every day.
Indeed, there is no better time than Thanksgiving to reflect on all that we have achieved together this year. We really do have a lot to be thankful for.
My best to each and every one of you and to your families for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
