The COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it unfamiliar challenges. This new territory also presents new opportunities to show kindness from afar, come together in creative ways, reach out to support one another, and prove, no matter what happens, that our community has the strength to stay together through anything.
Although we were physically separated, our DGSOM community came together virtually for recruitment, Match Day, Second Look, and graduation. Students, faculty, and staff have gathered in virtual town halls to share information and support. Across our community, strong feelings of unity are transcending physical distance.
While none of us can say when we might put this pandemic behind us, we can promise that throughout this period of distance, we will continue innovating ways to make events joyful and to connect with one another when we must be apart.
