Gratitude. Research. Hope.

Below is my monthly message for the May 2018 edition of the MHRI newsletter, Focus. You can view Focus online at

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Life is so busy we rarely take the time to reflect on the ‘big’ questions that are at the heart of living. Why are we working so hard? Does it really matter? Are we making a difference?

Gratitude. Research. Hope.

For the first time, and through the efforts of the MedStar Health Philanthropy team, a video presentation allowed us to follow the journey of two MedStar research participants. These two patients, Jessica and Kevin, shared their personal stories and reminded us about the importance of research at MedStar Health. It was grounding, humbling, and emotional. Through this impactful video, we see first-hand that gratitude is real and research brings hope.

If you were not one of the 800+ attendees at the Seventh Annual MedStar Health Research Symposium, please watch this video NOW  – it will only take you a few minutes but will stay with you forever.
Watch the video on the MedStar Health Youtube channel.
Thank you to Jessica, Kevin and their families for sharing their story. There are thousands of people that take part in research at MedStar and we are changing lives every day, both for our patients today and tomorrow.

This is only possible with your support and hard work. Our research brings hope and instills gratitude. Thank you.
