You cheer for your teammates. Always.

Dr. Shannon Scott-Vernaglia, Mass General

Any player can be the one to make the clutch play that changes the tide of a game, from starter to typically-on-the-bench; everyone matters.

What do you think?

Do you want to add to the conversation? Please share!

Dr. April Erlich, Johns Hopkins Medicine

On the softball field I was taught to never destroy the other team. If you know you’re going to win and have a team beat in skill and opportunity, slow down, let everyone play, work some fundamentals, and win with class. We have to remember to lift those who are not on our team up. And winning by a landslide is no win at all and something to be corrected.

Dr. Eric Last, Northwell Health, NY

Take one for the team if you have to.

Dr. Mariah Robertson, Johns Hopkins Medicine

Communicate clearly and frequently.

Dr. Margaret Chisolm, Johns Hopkins Medicine

Dr. Liz Phung, Johns Hopkins Medicine

Every person’s position and role is equally essential.

Dr. Aline Charabaty, Johns Hopkins Medicine

Respect, trust, and elevate every member of the team for the win!
