It is hard to choose only one moment in 2020. Brookside, in collaboration with Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center and with the support of other primary care staff, provided COVID testing, social determinants of health screening, food resources and voter registration from May 20 through Nov. 5. In addition to serving our patients inside Brookside, our staff worked tirelessly outside at the testing site. They served our patients and the whole community with compassion, kindness, dedication and a collaborative spirit every day, rain or shine.

I am so proud of our leadership team and the Brookside staff — a million shining moments, rolled into one.
