Many times in our lives we have the opportunity to choose our strategy. We may choose to be proactive — to plan and forecast for the futures of our visions, or we may decide to wait and respond to our circumstances as we receive them. I am of the same mind as famed author and speaker John C. Maxwell, when he professes his belief “that everyone chooses how to approach life. If you’re proactive, you focus on preparing. If you’re reactive, you end up focusing on repairing.” As much as possible, in our lives and in our work, we must choose the initial heavy lifting in a proactive approach. When we make this choice, we equip ourselves with as many tools, resources, and support as possible to achieve the best outcomes in our situations.
Although we must recognize the occasional need for a reactive role, the School of Medicine has strategically chosen to proactively address its challenges. For example, the University of Maryland Medicine’s “Shared Vision 2020” demonstrates our strategy to position ourselves for maximum and extraordinary success through accelerating the pace of discovery, collaboration, innovation, and quality of patient-centered care, even in the face of diminished federal research support.
For over 40 years, the physicians and researchers in our Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health (CVD) have chosen to dedicate themselves to the discovery, development and implementation of both preventive medicine and medical treatment solutions. The exceptional work they produce enables the citizens of this world to make the best-informed decisions for their unique circumstances, whether that includes the employment of prophylactic or therapeutic vaccinology.
CVD is an integral part of a team working to promote wide-scale use of a conjugate vaccine for typhoid, a disease that results in 11 to 20 million cases a year and up to 161,000 deaths worldwide. This team, the Typhoid Vaccine Acceleration Consortium (TyVAC), is working to accelerate introduction of new typhoid conjugate vaccines in low resource settings around the world. This milestone work of CVD could dramatically impact prevention efforts. Considering this latest accomplishment and our history of endeavors, from malaria and cholera prevention to immunizations of diarrheal and infectious diseases, I am immensely proud of the dedication and passion for global health I have witnessed among our esteemed CVD faculty, staff, trainees, and students. They embody our four key mission areas of Education, Research, Clinical Care and Community Engagement and Impact through the realization of exemplary events such as the prevention of a disease due to a vaccine or therapy we researched, tested, and in many cases, helped develop. The significance of the advancements we initiate is immeasurable.
Sometimes diagnoses such as cancer leave us with little choice but to respond and repair, yet our ambition positions us in the best possible posture to react. Just a few weeks ago, we celebrated a pivotal chapter in the School of Medicine’s narrative of cancer treatment with the official dedication of the Fannie Angelos Cellular Therapeutics Laboratory. The initiation of this laboratory marks the clinical viability of cancer immunotherapy we have achieved, signifying the possibility of saving tens of thousands of lives in the years to come. Stimulating the immune system to work harder and smarter, this creative technique proves a promising new frontier in cancer treatment. The out-of-the-box strategy of helping the immune system to recognize cancer cells and strengthening its response to destroy them appropriately joins our growing enterprise of cancer treatment innovations, including the Maryland Proton Treatment Center and GammaPod technology for breast cancer.
As we celebrate graduation this month, I invite the Class of 2018 to consider their individual strategies of serving with a higher purpose and greater intention in the profession of healthcare they have chosen. Their commitment reaches far past their own lives and into those of thousands of others who will benefit from this remarkable class’ devotion through the ability to enjoy the plans they created for themselves. While we cannot always choose the proactive approach when faced with challenges, all of us can elect to work diligently in planning for those scenarios when we must be reactionary. As we approach the mid-point of the calendar year, let us assess the goals we identified in January and review our accomplishments thus far. We can still actively engage in our aspirations and define the steps we must take to achieve our aims over the second half of the year. I wholeheartedly believe we are on pace for yet another impressive year of success at the School of Medicine.
In the relentless pursuit of excellence, I am Sincerely yours,
E. Albert Reece, MD, PhD, MBA Vice President for Medical Affairs, University of Maryland John Z. and Akiko K. Bowers Distinguished Professor and Dean, University of Maryland School of Medicine
