Lauding our Luminaries

We are exceedingly appreciative for all of you who are continuing your steadfast dedication to the service and care of patients. We are grateful for your service as excellent physicians, leaders, professionals, and role models as we continue to press on through this dreadful pandemic. Your competence and compassion at the bedside, unwavering perseverance, and confident leadership are beacons of hope.

Many ask, “How much longer?” This is an unanswerable question. We rely on the wisdom of our public health experts, researchers, and scientists who are working on effective treatments and prevention. Our public health leaders, including Dr. Anthony Fauci (AΩA, Weill Cornell Medical College, 1965), and Dr. Deborah Birx, who speak truth to power as our country’s centralized authorities, are unrelenting in their commitment and servant leadership.

Each of you is on your own front line, with your AΩA team standing strong with you. Your entire AΩA family celebrates each of you – the ER physician who, having recovered from COVID himself, was one of the first people to donate convalescent plasma for a novel COVID treatment program; the hundreds of medical students who graduated early in order to help where and when needed; the epidemiologists, researchers and data analysts providing critical information; and our health care colleagues, nurses, and first responders who repeatedly place themselves in harm’s way.

AΩA National Office

Your AΩA national office staff continues to keep the Society operational, working remotely to ensure the continuity of AΩA, publishingThe Pharos, and producing AΩA’s most recent professionalism monograph Best Practices in Medical Professionalism: Addressing Burnout and Resilience in Our Profession. Throughout this pandemic, funding for Medical Student Service Leadership Grants, Carolyn L. Kuckein Student Research Fellowships, Fellows in Leadership, The Pharos Poetry Awards, Volunteer Clinical Faculty Awards, and Administrative Recognition Awards have all been presented to students and physicians. As AΩA members, you have made this possible through your continued financial support by payment of dues, and by serving as reviewers and supporters of the Society and its members.

If the national office team can provide any assistance to you, or your Chapter, or if you have a story to share or simply want to connect, please reach out! We look forward to receiving your submissions for the summer edition of The Pharos, which will be fully dedicated to experiences and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
