We hope this short Newsletter finds you safe and well. Across the world, we are feeling the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak. We are all coping with this in different ways… from a shift to working-from-home and trying to care for older family members absent the ability to actually visit them, to oversight of school lessons for our kids. For all of us with a healthcare professional background, these times are sobering and we are grateful for colleagues dedicated to front-line care. The Precision Guiding Principles that serve as the foundation for our teams are stronger than ever during times like this – reminding us of our purpose, our accountability to each other, how to act with integrity and respect, and to treat our colleagues as partners to achieve true collaboration. We will keep living these principles every day with you as we work with you.
We’d like to remind you of some helpful resources we’ve compiled through our password-free microsite with key Coronavirus informational resources by country along with activities for families staying home. You may have seen an email earlier this year – we’ve added new resources to this site! Please feel free to share these resources with your friends and family.
We also want to share a few additional updates with you.
