Congrats to Our First SOARING Program Graduates

Greetings! I hope your summer is off to a great start. Summer is a time where many of us take time away to be with friends and family before school begins. It’s also the time when we begin assisting our new School of Medicine and nursing colleagues transition into the Department of Medicine. That said, I hope you are able to take a pause and reflect on how much we appreciate the work you do for our patients and staff.


"Summertime is always the best of what might be." -Charles Bowden
