“The current pandemic has allowed our professional communities to reflect. This has resulted in two insights. First, essential workers (health care professionals, front-line staff, small business owners, bank tellers, and grocery shop clerks) provide essential services for society and must be protected, celebrated, and supported. Second, preventing pandemics is an investment in society’s health and wellness and preventative approaches will be far more beneficial to the health and wellness of the community in conjunction with accurate diagnosis and timely treatment.”
