Executive Director’s MessageI used to sew my own clothes when I was younger. I don’t mean taking up thehem of my trousers or patching a hole—I followed a pattern and sewed my ownclothes. It was quite common back then.My family had a tradition of taking the scrap cloths and turning them intoquilts. I realize this story dates me, but one of my fondest memories wasmy mom’s 75th birthday. My sister organized a quilting party where threegenerations of women from my family gathered in a quilting circle with pillowsize blocks and my mom taught us all how to create a quilt using materials andscraps from five generations of my family. We each made a pillow cover thatday and I still have mine.The COVID-19 pandemic gave me lots of time for reflection. I thought aboutmy own family and how there’s so much more I want to share with them,including the gifts my mom passed on to me. I thought about the importanceof having strong foundations, not just for our families, but for our communityas well. Our community, along with the entire world, was tested this past year.When the pandemic hit, I had a front row seat allowing me to witness how allthose years of community outreach, education, listening and learning fromresidents and building public private partnership had created a foundation oftrust where our community had faith that we would get through this pandemictogether. The San Francisco Bay Area vaccination rates are just remarkablecompared to other urban areas in America.We know the work can’t stop here. There’s always more we can do to build upona good foundation. At the San Francisco Health Service System, we issued ahealth plan Request for Proposals (RFP) last year for our Active Employee andEarly Retiree health benefits and we decided to add more choices and enhanceour PPO plan. Please review your new choices carefully and select the plan thatbest meets the healthcare needs for you and your family.As we continue our journey to pandemic recovery, I want to encourage you toreflect on the foundation of the relationships you have with your family andfriends. The biggest lesson I learned after a year where I couldn’t spend timewith those I love is that we can all improve the quality of the time when we canspend time together. Maybe that means turning off our cell phones to give ourloved ones our undivided attention or maybe it’s sharing a recipe or craft, likequilting, that has been passed down from generations.Be well,Abbie Yant, RN, MAExecutive Director
