Dear CUCOG Members,

Happy New Year!  And congratulations on getting through the last 2 challenging years of the COVID-19 pandemic.  I hope that many of you were able to be with family and friends over the holidays despite the curve ball of Omicron.  I also hope that your departmental faculty, learners, and staff are finding resilience and a degree of optimism about the future.  The CUCOG Board and I appreciate the tremendous work you are doing to keep your departments moving forward and for your ongoing dedication to our academic missions.  

I personally have much hope for 2022 and hope to see many of you at the annual CUCOG meeting coming up in May in San Diego.  Our 2022 Board resolution is the ongoing implementation of a strategic plan focused on providing resources to Department Chairs and our faculty. 

My personal resolution is civility and kindness “no matter what” as we help our departments and institutions through more pandemic.  All the best for a wonderful 2022.

Best regards, 

Eve Espey, MD, MPH
President, CUCOG
