Welcome to our summer issue. As I write this, many frontline MRTs are facing unprecedented pressures because of COVID-19. As essential workers, they are juggling caring for children at home, and worry about relatives and friends and the anxiety of working in a rapidly changing environment. Our patients are facing delays in screening, treatment, and other imaging and medical services as we prioritize helping those who are sick or at high risk.

How each of us carries ourselves in this world greatly affects our experience together. And with news and social media occupying such a central part of our daily activity, it’s easy to forget to investigate our own behavior. We are so impulsively quick to post and tweet about the issues of the day that we often leave love out of the equation.
