I cannot begin to tell you how much your presentation meant to everyone present. During the past several weeks, being out in the community, everyday people expressed their appreciation of you, our other speakers, and the value of MMS ( Mini-Medical School Medical Science and Aging seminar). Comments of quality, your sense of humor, and seriousness of our healthcare and patient care. The participants spoke of their reflection of what they learned, their benefit of knowing the importance of self care and care of others. Knowing they can use the new found knowledge immediately as key to new learning and a sense of hopes and dreams that you gave them.
In spite of the complexity and as you know, there is much in Medical Science where we have no answers, no solutions, no magic! You were still able to express your wonderful sense of humor while knowing you have only humor to help relate to the people you give everyday as a caregiver to them, you only, the ability to give them comfort and hope. That was self-evident as you answered the questions with honesty and clarity, and helpful suggestions.
Thank you so much for committing to be our 2016 Speaker MMS for saying yes, for coming, for giving each of us knowledge and understanding, and knowing deeply, you wished you could give more everyday as you practice your art of medicine.
I especially appreciated your accepting our invitation to be part of our MMS team with your personal and professional transition of a move and work. All high demands and requiring your attention. Yet you gave your best and gave it your all.
You are amazing. I was so impressed with your work and your presentation in going so much to us.
In your reflection, you may find magic solutions to touch the heart of your patients, present and future, and they are better by your caring.
You achieved more than you know as you did that remarkable day of April 9th MMS for almost 400, and they went away feeling great that they were there and
learning so much from you, and they will impart their knowledge to others.
That is the very reason why you are passionate about what you do and the influence you have on others!
Thanks a million for being part of giving once more in the time demands. May the memory of April 9th remain a warm memory and glow on your magic and work with us!
Perhaps we will have another opportunity to work together! I would be honored!
I will see you soon.
Best wishes and take care, Eva
