I would like to thank Conal for his never-ending willingness to help and provide regulatory guidance. May it be an IRB question or FDA regulation/policy, he is always happy to assist. In times when our IRB is swamped with urgent submissions of COVID-19 trials, Conal still manages to make himself available and lend a helping hand. Thank you for everything you do! - Alice Szydlowska, MBA
VIEW VIDEO: This Fist-Bump goes out to Jeroen Molinger for his incredible dedication and commitment to the LEEP-COVID trial of Longitudinal Metabolic and Cardiac Physiology in COVID-19 patients. He is working nights, weekends and 14 hour days assessing COVID patients to provide some of the first data in the world on the metabolic pathophysiology of COVID-19 and to improve ability of clinicians to optimize care and patient outcomes.
VIEW VIDEO: I would like send a huge shout out to Jhana Parikh and Jake Ribet, two of our amazing clinical research coordinators in our Anesthesiology CRU. Thank you so much for performing in-person research activities on positive COVID patients in Paul Wischmeyer’s LEAP-COVID trial. This is not something you had to do and I am so appreciative to both of you for answering our call for volunteers. Thank you! - Tiffany Bisanar
I think of you every day. Please stay safe. And thank you for all you’re doing! – Kathy Gage
Thank you for your awesome effort as the board runner for Cardiac. She handled a transplant and a busy schedule with limited staff and fellow availability and still managed to come out on top! Thanks for your hard work and dedication to your team and trainees. – Nazish Hashmi, MD
Kudos to Kam for spearheading the initiative to train non-ICU physicians in critical care in time to take care of patients during the surge. Thanks, Kam!! – Madhav Swaminathan, MD
While I was working a night shift in the VA SICU, a veteran on comfort care requested a strawberry milkshake. Kate (who has been in the PICU) was kind enough to pick up a milkshake and deliver it to the VA; the veteran was incredibly grateful and had a big smile. I am really appreciative for Kate using her time off to help us provide holistic care for our patient. – Nathaniel Erskine, MD
