The COVID-19 epidemic challenges all of us, both personally and professionally. While it has energized many of us by spotlighting our role as public health professionals, there is an enormous amount of work to be done. The professional challenges include fighting the epidemic itself as well as anticipating and preventing the secondary health effects that follow from anxiety, social isolation, and economic recession. The personal challenges, as we all know, are wide-ranging even in the short term. Nevertheless, the professional contributions being made by our students, staff, faculty, and alumni are extraordinary. Keep up the good work, and above all keep up the recommended risk-reduction practices that help us all stay safe.
