For the 2021 contest, using the following quote as inspiration, medical and nursing students were asked to reflect on humanism in healthcare during the past difficult year using your experiences or observations, as an individual or as a team (doctors, nurses, therapists, etc.)
“We’ll observe how the burdens braved by humankind
Are also the moments that make us humans kind;
Let each morning find us courageous, brought closer;
Heeding the light before the fight is over.
When this ends, we’ll smile sweetly, finally seeing
In testing times, we became the best of beings.”
– Excerpt from “The Miracle of Morning,” by Amanda Gorman
