The MACPO Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe holiday season. The year 2020 will be soon behind us and we are thankful to move into 2021.  We will remember the lessons learned in 2020 that will assist us for years to come.  As the vaccine begins its distribution throughout the United States and world, we thank the scientists who devoted their time and talents. We also want to thank the front-line workers and their families for their relentless dedication to provide healthcare for infected people. Finally, we thank the men and women (and their families) who are serving in the United States Armed Forces.
