Dear Friends,
Here we are into November, and it appears that we will have a new administration in Washington beginning January 20th. COVID-19 has found ways to surge again across the country. There are some positive outcomes in the vaccine trials, and hopefully, sometime in the next year, we will be able to feel safe in receiving vaccinations. It is a time of uncertainty, but also a time of hope. 

This month our newsletter focuses on palliative care, which is still not fully understood by much of the public or by payers. COVID-19 has made access to palliative care more difficult, and telehealth does not provide the human interaction necessary for this type of care. This month's expert contributor, Dr. Schulman-Green, will add some insights into the opportunities and challenges of palliative care.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and please remember to follow the CDC guidelines for your celebration.
