On behalf of the ACLGIM Executive Committee, we wish you and yours the best for the holiday season. Continuing our conversation on the changing nature of primary care practice from our previous issue, we explore changes in workflows and the workforce. Since before the pandemic, portal messaging has been impacting workflow in the clinic. Dr. Robert Doolan presents his work on redesigning primary care templates to account for asynchronous care via portal messages and the reducing the risk of clinician burnout. During the Hess Institute meeting, Dr. Megan Gerhardt delivered a thought-provoking presentation on generational diversity in the workplace, and we have asked her to summarize her key points regarding Gentelligence®. For those of you who missed her talk, I encourage you to watch her TEDxMiamiUniversity talk on YouTube.1 As someone who straddles two generations, Dr. David Callender provides his perspective on managing generational diversity in academic medicine. Dr. Kimberly Manning—better known by her social media handle of @gradydoc—shares part two of her mentoring story “Medicine Needs You.”
Finally, with this issue, we bid a fond farewell to Dr. Lauren Block who has ably served her tenure as Senior Editor of the ACLGIM Leadership Forum during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
