This past year has been both challenging and life-changing. Yet, throughout it all, we have witnessed the strength and determination of our staff at Mount Sinai Morningside. We have endured so much together.

We want to honor all that we have been through during the pandemic, and we want to prepare ourselves to step into a bold, hopeful, and optimistic future at Mount Sinai Morningside. We cannot do this without our MSM teams. We want to emphasize how much their hard work, dedication, and unwavering commitment to their patients mean to us. They are the definition of resilience.

On Monday, April 26, we launched a new initiative at Mount Sinai Morningside, which we are referring to as “Resilient Together.” Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing a few messages about resilience from members of our MSM family—more specifically, the essential workers of “Faces of Resilience” project by Claudia Paul Photography. To celebrate “Resilient Together”, we asked these individuals to reflect on resilience and how it may have changed since last year. We hope you take a moment and pause to reflect on the incredible work that was done here and continues to be done here at Mount Sinai Morningside.

For those interested - the artists are Jean Dubuffet and Isamo Noguchi

One of my favorite living photographers is Platon. A talk he did a few years back in NYC has remained the most profound one I have ever attended.
One of the things that stuck most with me is when he said that as photographers we have a duty to use our talent to better the world. Paraphrasing here but that was the gist of it.
