Greg's Greetings

If you are reading this on the day The Insider comes out, I will be out of the office taking a few days off from the hospital to enjoy time with my family. If you don’t know, I struggle taking time away from work. I have this nagging sense of...

Amy's Reflections

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the 4th of July weekend and were able to spend some time either outdoors soaking up some sun or spending time with family and friends. We headed to Missouri for the weekend to celebrate the life of my very dear uncle that passed away this past year....

Notes from Steve

Last year in the deep of the pandemic I thought “just look forward to July of 2021 - things will be back and life will be good”. I did and it is. Yes, things have changed. Yes, we still mask and are more aware of our health … vaccinations, social...
