“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
– William Arthur Ward

Dear Colleagues-Friends,

As we pause to reflect and give thanks over the holidays for the many blessings in our lives, let us remember to always be thankful for the wonderful mission we serve and for our opportunities to improve the health and well-being in the Commonwealth and beyond. Thanks to all of you for your dedication to discovery, to educating and inspiring the next generation, and to providing quality care every day. We also give thanks to the many community leaders who support and enable our mission.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
