A New Way Forward

Has it been just a month ago that I last wrote to all of you, it feels more like a year. As you are aware, life has changed dramatically. The interesting thing to me is how adaptable we humans are. In just a few weeks, we have learned to dance to a new rhythm of life. From wearing masks in public, waiting in lines to get into stores, waving hello and washing hands often to ordering groceries for delivery and for me, doing virtual consults; we are all adapting to new ways of doing routine things. Now that we have been staying home to flatten the Covid curve to avoid overwhelming our healthcare system we must begin the process of learning to live in a new reality where we are playing a bit of Russian roulette every time we venture out. Will we get sick with Covid-19? If so, how sick will I become? Am I in a high-risk group for severe illness? We are all going to have to add this calculation to the many that we make every day without much conscious thought. Life is about choices and for now, our society is trying to find the correct balance between protecting life at all cost and returning to a full, active, engaged and productive life.

I encourage you to watch the video below. It is a recorded conversation I recently had with a friend of mine in which I explore the many difficult decisions we as individuals living in an interdependent society have to consider when trying to strike a balance between health, safety and economic survival during the Covid-19 pandemic. It also delves into lessons I learned while training in New York City during the HIV/AIDS epidemic, new information the medical community is discovering about managing our current crisis and how this information informs the practical considerations I am instituting to maximize the safety of my staff and patients while we begin to fully re-open the practice. The video is a bit long, but I hope you will find it interesting, informative and perhaps some of the ideas discussed will spur conversation and help you and your family navigate this difficult time that we are living through.

Since our yearly June Beauty Event will not be taking place this year, I thought that it would helpful to do a series of events as a way of staying connected with all of you. I will be doing a series of weekly Zoom Webinars every Thursday starting this upcoming week, May 7th. During each event, discount codes will be provided for both products and services.

You are invited to Dr. Yellin’s Zoom webinar.
