Connections: Dr. Lucy McBride on a COVID serenity prayer


The CDC recently published a list of ideas about how to prepare for safe holiday celebrations. But most Americans are not going to consider another Zoom Christmas. So how can we transition into a rhythm of life that reduces risk while also acknowledging that COVID is here to stay?

That's the focus of a new piece from Dr. Lucy McBride. She writes that we can find serenity -- just like the old prayer says -- in focusing on what we can control, and accepting that which we can not change.

She joins us to talk about how to think about risk, and how to find peace in a world with endemic COVID. Our guest:

  • Lucy McBride, M.D., practicing internal medicine physician in Washington, D.C., and contributor to the Atlantic
