I jumped at the opportunity to welcome students from Fitchburg State to my department. I’m glad these young adults could put themselves in a police cruiser and see if this is something they want to do full-time.
I had to think about how to reach my students online, and that’s when I started with the idea of a book. I draw a lot of coloring pages that kids have at school, so I was thinking about a series of those that kids could download. And then it grew into an actual children’s book.
It’s definitely been hard and anxiety-provoking, because I’ve been putting myself at risk every day for my patients. But I’m extremely grateful I can do my part and lend a hand to helping the people in need at this time.
