From the President -May 2021

Happy May!  As we approach the end of our fiscal year, the first of 4 years supporting the Division of Critical Care Medicine and the PICU, I have to say I am delighted with the way Kindervelt continued working through all the obstacles the entire year due to the pandemic.

Who would ever think we would be able to accomplish what we have? It’s been a joy meeting and working with the doctors and staff and learning about the new Critical Care Building and enhancements for the PICU. It’s rewarding being a part of it and also celebrating our 50th year. What a history we have!

Anticipation builds for our check presentation to CCHMC coming up on May 19th. Amy Rosenberg, Annual Meeting Chair, has prepared a wonderful evening for us to celebrate the 2020 and 2021 years. How wonderful that 60 members will be able to once again be a part of the excitement in-person this year and others can watch the check reveal live on Facebook. There are still a few spots open for in-person reservations and time to order fun favors that will be used during the reveal for those groups that may want to organize a “watch party” and celebrate along with us from home. Details are listed in this edition.

Thank goodness for nice weather now, that will allow more groups to meet in person and enjoy each other’s company instead of looking at each other in little boxes on the computer screen.  We are all “zoomed” out, but how wonderful that has been, and is, to give us another option for meeting. Can you image what this would have been like had it happened in the 70’s?

As I wrap up the first year of my presidency, I will share that I take immense pride in talking about Kindervelt and all the wonderful things we do that make a difference in the lives of so many at Cincinnati Children’s. That pride is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our membership…truly amazing!
