Simple acts of kindness spread rapidly and remind us that we’re not alone, according to Gina D’Costa, MD. That’s especially important to remember as we grapple with COVID-19. “Every crisis reminds us that it is not about us as individuals, but rather about us as a community,” says the Baptist Health Richmond physician.
The pandemic has reinforced Dr. D’Costa’s belief in the power of gratitude: “It has strengthened my resolve to help my patients heal and cope with adversity. It has helped me further realize how important our families, both at work and home, are to us and how we have worked with each other to strengthen ourselves during this pandemic.”
