Message from the Chair
September 11, 2017

Thanks to all of you who joined us for the recent State of the Department Address. Preparing the talk gave me the chance to reflect on how the department has grown (800 strong) and the difference each faculty, trainee and staff member makes every day. Looking toward our strategic future, I am excited about the opportunities we have to improve children’s health in our community, state, country, and throughout the world. Our missions of clinical care, teaching and discovery all support each other exceptionally well and we are lucky to be a part of such a strong team.

Over the coming months, I want to encourage everyone to dive into our EPIC rollout with the same commitment and professionalism that you exhibit every day. We know converting to a new EMR will be challenging, but we know that all of us, including our patients and families, will benefit greatly from a smooth rollout.

Please plan to join us later this month for the CPF Open House – it will be a terrific opportunity to have the faculty and community pediatricians spend time together. I am greatly looking forward to an enjoyable evening.

Thanks for all that you do! We are already off to a great year and I look forward to many wonderful things to come.
