New Year's Resolutions


Happy to be done with 2023? What is your 2024 New Year's resolution?

Susan J. Noonan, MD, MPH, discusses New Year's resolutions. This time of year is often one of reflection, for both clinicians and patients. In setting a goal for the new year, it is important to examine if that goal is positive, healthy, and for the right reasons. Choosing a SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound) goal ensures it is achievable.
