Rhode Island Chapter Delivers Food to Residents and Hospitalists
Dear Chapter Members:
We are in a new world and new words have entered our vocabulary, like “social distancing,” “quarantine,” and “isolation.” Not words that make us feel more connected, but a necessary part of our current existence.
I am sure I speak for many when I acknowledge a multitude of feelings - sadness, anxiety, anger, loneliness and fear. Over the past few weeks watching so many rise to this crisis and chaos, have experienced so many other feelings to offset the negative - heroism, sacrifice, pride, warmth, and human kindness. I hope we can remember the acts of kindness and caring we have all witnessed and to bring those feelings out and share them with others as coronavirus fades (I certainly hope that is soon).
Thanks to all for all you are doing to care for your patients during this unique time in history. I want those in our community whose lives have been personally affected by coronavirus to know that our hearts go out to you and your loved ones. In some hospitals, the bulk of the care of COVID-19 patients is currently being provided by our pulmonary/critical care colleagues and hospitalists. I want to give them a special shout out of thanks for all of the hard work they are doing.
The Chapter wanted to show thanks to all the residents and hospitalists on the front lines across the state, including the Miriam Hospital, Kent County Hospital, RI Hospital, the Roger Williams Medical Center and the Veterans Hospital, by donating dinner to them last week.
Remember, the ACP is here to make a difference for all RI physicians and I welcome input and ideas from individuals even during this crisis. Please see below for helpful links.
Thanks again for all you are doing and please stay safe. Please remember to take care of yourselves.

See What Happened! Rhode Island Event Photos
The September Hospitalist dinner at the Marriott Providence was a success, with interesting and informative discussions. Here is a photo of an engaging conversation with Dr. Joe Li and some Rhode Island Hospitalists.
We had a great chapter meeting! Take a few moments to view photos from the meeting.
