A thank you card from my department.

My 10 year-old twins created a TV show series they named “Will it float?” inspired by their science experiment homework on buoyancy. They are such characters in it, and the Coca-Cola bottle as a microphone really hits the mark. #thankfulforteachers #sciencerocks

Deborah Freeland, MD, Johns Hopkins

Zoom GIMboree! We learned about vulnerable populations during this pandemic, highs/lows of telemedicine, and what’s like to be a PCP in Gallup for the Indian Health Service. Fantastic to be together virtually—now I know a cameo from TX is possible!

Irene Mestores, MD, University of Florida

Being on a webex where one person’s dog started barking . . . and then someone else’s . . . and someone else’s . . . and then cats started meowing. It was a total breakdown and I loved it.
