That's the thing about a Pandemic, you get to take a closer look at all aspects of your life in a new light.

The stress of this once-in-a-lifetime (we hope) virus is relentless - at work, at home, in your community and across the globe. Everything has been put under the magnifying glass -  the public health system, your political beliefs, your family relationships and most of all - your practice.

I have three quick questions for you.
