CRISTINA FERRONE: I am Cristina Ferrone. I am the Director of the Liver Program. One of my new year’s resolutions last year was, and I’m still working on it, is to do a better job at saying no to things that don’t allow me to be as productive in the areas that I care about. So, doing a better job of saying no to things that are not truly in line with my goals.
TINA DUHAIME: My name is Ann-Christine Duhaime. I am a pediatric neurosurgeon, Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Massachusetts General Hospital. My New Year’s Resolution would be to not give up on long-term goals, just because of short-term frustrations.
