With summer coming to an end and many questions looming about the upcoming school year, Dr. Tina Q. Tan shares her must-reads from the August issue.
I hope everyone has had a nice summer and a chance to relax and enjoy the fun activities that only the season can bring. It is hard to believe that the new school year is already upon us. As the delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 spreads throughout the United States, especially in unvaccinated populations, it is important to remember that the COVID-19 pandemic is not over.

This month’s journal is a special back-to-school issue focusing on “What will the new school year look like?” It includes:
As always, thank you for providing outstanding care to your patients during these challenging times. Please make time to take care of yourselves. As Jon Bon Jovi stated, “Miracles happen everyday. Change your perception of what a miracle is and you will see them all around you”.

With warmest regards,
Tina Q. Tan
