Welcome to the fall 2020/winter 2021 issue of the JCIPE newsletter. 2020 was a year like no other. We witnessed and weathered the impact of the COVID pandemic in a variety of ways, and felt it on nearly every aspect of our professional and personal lives. We also collectively witnessed atrocities too numerous to count, resulting from the deep-seated systemic racism that is intrinsically tied to health disparities and inequities in this country.
The pain and adversity has made this a dark time in our history, yet, has enabled us, individually and communally, to heed and recognized historically marginalized voices, to reflect on who we are and who we want to be, to build connections and collaborations as a means of amplifying voice, to channel our creativity to formulate previously inconceivable visions and novel approaches, and to harness pain and frustration in the form of action.
