Lloyd Minor, MD, dean of the Stanford School of Medicine reflected on the trials of the pandemic and how, in the face of a health crisis, the Stanford Medicine community responded with resilience and strength.
"Crises either bring people together or drive them apart. I'm so grateful that because of who you are as individuals and who we are as a community, this crisis brought us together and strengthened our resolve," Minor said. "Because of science and the sheer will of so many, here we are, in person together, looking forward to the future with significantly more determination than trepidation."
Featured commencement speaker Laurene Powell Jobs praised graduates for their accomplishments and offered guidance, too. "I can think of no better group -- better trained and better equipped -- to care for the world than you. Always carry with you mercy, dignity, beauty and justice, for these, too, are medicine," she said.
