  1. A short poem from pediatrician Preethi Raghupatruni, MD

    Mask:
    We wear this mask to protect you, something we have vowed to do
    We wear this mask to remind us that even with this virus, we will not stop caring for you
    Connections can be made in many ways, sometimes we need to get creative
    Now more than ever, all our ideas and senses working together, becoming integrated
    This mask will not stop us but help us to continue to our duty
    Its our shield of armor, whether seen by video chat or in person, it’s a beauty
    We wear our mask proudly, so we can keep connecting and seeing you,
    As we miss you all, more than we can express, and honestly there is nothing more true
