Harnessing Adversity for Excellence
Health sciences faculty and staff are no strangers to adversity! But how do we make positive use of this seemingly negative pressure? Harnessing adversity can mean shifting our attention from fear to joy, replacing weakness with strength, or shedding limits and thinking bigger than we ever thought possible. As we also express gratitude for our challenges, they can start us on the path to greatness.
