"I would like to extend my personal hearty congratulations to the Class of 2020. You are arriving just in time. As much as you have learned in the past four years, you will learn more, much more as you progress in your careers. You will gain a new appreciation for what it really means to be the decision-maker in precarious situations. Now, as we look to the future and create what will become a new normal for our profession, I am even more thankful that the intensity, commitment and compassion you have shared with us is ready to meet the changing health care needs of our communities when we need it most."
