A New Year's Message from Katherine

For more than a few of us 2019 has been a tough year marked by illness and loss. But it has also brought its victories, and rewards.

I am cheering the incoming year - and decade - and wishing friends and readers and colleagues around the world the very best of best wishes. It may be a cliché but I have to say it: giving back brings the greatest joy.

Good luck with all your pursuits,

Katherine
