How would you complete the following sentence? Always believe ____________. To me, this prompt is infinitely full of promise, even as a statement unto itself. Novelist Anatole France once expressed, "To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe."
In this issue of Donor Connection, scholarship recipient Karena Washington inspires us with a beautiful tribute to those who acted to ease her transition from high school to college and help her realize her leadership potential. Faculty member Dr. Mutasem Rawas-Qalaji presents a breakthrough alternative to the Epi-Pen. And Paula Twitty Bushman shares a moving patient testimonial that demonstrates how effectively NSU researchers can translate scientific investigation into clinical care.
These story links and additional highlights presented below lend credence to our desire to dream, plan, act, and believe. I would finish the sentence, Always believe we have the power to realize tremendous potential.
