The Miller School of Medicine unites against an invisible enemy

Dear Alumni, Colleagues and Friends of the Miller School Family,

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the very positive feedback we received from you regarding the inaugural issue of the University of Miami Medicine Magazine. Unfortunately, much has changed since that first issue as the global pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus has not only caused an unprecedented disruption of our daily routine, but also has taken an extraordinary toll on human life.

The vivid images from New York and other cities that have been epicenters of the ravages caused by COVID-19 remind us of the inestimable importance of our amazing health care providers, who selflessly put their lives at risk to save others. They also remind us of the critical role of academic health centers such as ours not only in treating these patients, but also in training the next generation of physicians and in accelerating the discovery of rapid diagnostic tests and therapeutic interventions to combat this vexing virus.
