Dear Readers, We present to you the inaugural issue of the University of Texas Southwestern Pediatric Residency Program's Journal of Pediatrics. It represents some of our contemporary efforts to learn with and from our colleagues, and our desire to share this with a broader audience. It's not a coincidence that we are launching this journal in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. As seems true for many of our experiences related to the challenges of the pandemic, perhaps individual isolation and societal grief have made us even more committed to remaining connected with others. This journal has three main sections: peer-reviewed case reports from our residents, posters presented by our senior residents at our 10th annual residency scholarly projects conference, and humanities creations from our current cohort of resident colleagues. We aim to use this journal as one enduring means to share highlights of our pediatric residents' educational experiences - with our Residency Program, our Department and the larger pediatric community. It is a privilege and a joy to share with you some of the stories of those whom we seek to serve, the scholarship of our graduating residents, and the perspectives and artwork of our peers. We hope you find inspiration within.
