As we prepare to celebrate the 4th of July and the extended holiday weekend, I wanted to send a note to remind everyone to be careful and stay safe. By making smart choices, wearing face coverings, washing hands, and physical distancing, we can keep the Dugoni School family and our communities as healthy as possible. This virus continues to spread in the community, and we should certainly not be letting down our guard.

You may be interested in a special online event today: Harvard Business Review is hosting a session on LinkedIn with Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, discussing the topic “What It Will Take to Defeat COVID-19.” It takes place at noon PST today.

Also, this weekend, be sure to make time to stay in touch with your friends and families, or others who have helped you get to where you are today. Tell them how much you appreciate how they have touched your life. We are all going through this pandemic together, and when faced with such prolonged uncertainty and challenge, we all need somebody to lean on. I know that I certainly do from time to time.

I hope you enjoy this video that brings to life the importance of taking care of one another.

Be well, enjoy your holiday weekend, and stay safe.
