On a particularly dreary Monday in November, I arrived at the grand entrance of 15 Francis St., harried and a bit discombobulated. The door was closed, and as fate would have it, the scanner would not read my ID badge that day. Ugh. As I made another attempt to scan my employee ID, out of the corner of my eye I saw another person tap their badge. I turned around and was relieved to see a familiar, friendly face as the door was opened by none other than Dr. Betsy Nabel. She insisted that I enter before her. This not only made my day but has boosted my morale ever since. Thank you, Dr. Nabel, for putting words into action: We are all in this together!
