    So, as we welcome Research Administration Trainee Kristin Staicos, Academic Service Specialist Nakia Taylor, Senior Research Program Coordinator II Rebecca Richman, Program Manager Marta Seres, Senior Health Policy Advisor Sophie Kasimow, and Technical Support Analyst Marz Anthony Macahia, we’d also like to acknowledge the contributions of colleagues and friends like Kelci Straka, LaQuilah Sharp, Oliver Conrad, Rasheeka Brown, Sydnee Logan, Kischa Singleton, Derek Dangerfield, Elizabeth Sloand, Bobbie Tchopev, Kenneth Dion, Carmen Alvarez, and Megan Morrison. Best wishes to all from the SON family.
