Hello everybody,

I wanted to end healthcare appreciation week by giving a HUGE thanks to all medical and healthcare professionals as well as the students who are working towards those careers. These amazing professionals help us stay healthy, and provide healing and comfort when we are sick or otherwise unwell. This includes those who help us with our physical well-being, as well as our mental and emotional well-being. Each aspect of our well-being can affect the other, so when one aspect of our well-being happens to be out of alignment, it can affect another. Thankfully, we have a myriad of wonderful and dedicated professionals who are able to use their knowledge and skills to help us feel better. This is especially important in emergency situations which can be very taxing, both physically and emotionally for everyone involved. Healthcare workers put themselves at risk everyday to help those who are sick and injured, and oftentimes might be contagious. However, healthcare workers still remain strong and determined through it all for the sake of helping those in their time of need. They dedicate themselves everyday to helping people be well again, and make very big impacts on the lives of the people they care for.

Their jobs require a lot of time, effort, and education, and even though they love what they do, it can be very difficult and even grueling sometimes. With that said, it’s nice to let them know how much their work is appreciated. The world is a better place because of their hard work and dedication. I really admire and appreciate healthcare workers.

A special thanks to my cousin Dave, who had been working in the field of nursing, caring for the elderly and disabled before he decided to further his education in the medical field. Another special thanks to my cousin Poolpiti, who just received his Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Chiang Mai University. I’m so very proud of the both of you.

Appreciation for healthcare workers is something I feel everyday, and it’s because of healthcare workers that I am still alive and healthy today.

With much love and gratitude,

Cherie Poolsiri
