2016 has been an interesting year for me both personally and professionally. On the home front, I have encountered some unexpected challenges that forced my attention away from work towards myself and my family. At the same time, MidlevelU has also grown to 100,000 readers strong, launched a residency-like program for NPs, Midlevels for the Medically Underserved, and continued to expand its online offerings. I've got a great team to help out with these projects, but still the year has certainly seemed like a whirlwind! While unanticipated events caused the year to have its share of ups and downs, expectedly these challenges have led to personal and professional growth.
