Message From the Chair – September 2020

University of Virginia Dr Mitchell RosnerWelcome to September and the beginning of fall. To say the least, this is an unusual and unexpected start to the academic year. We remain socially distanced, masked, and gowned and gloved and life is still unsettled. However, when I previewed this edition of Medicine Matters, I was struck by a strong sense of positive energy and optimism despite the challenges we face. For one thing, how could someone not smile when they see all of the happy baby faces in this month’s newsletter. What a special time for all of these families and what a beautiful and happy group of babies! In addition, faculty and staff continue their focus on our missions and the results show in publications, grants, as well as excellence in education and clinical care. What an amazing collection of accomplishments! As you will see, the Division of Nephrology, which is highlighted this month, is a great example of this vibrancy. Under Mark Okusa’s leadership, the Division has grown in all respects and is nationally and internationally recognized for its work in many areas. Please congratulate the Division on their accomplishments. As always, I welcome your thoughts and inputs.

With best wishes,

Mitchell H. Rosner, MD, MACP
Henry B. Mulholland Professor of Medicine
Chair, Department of Medicine
