Jill, it's great to be with you again.

[01:16] Dr. Jill Sellers:
You and I have worked on a few medical education projects over the years, such as webinars, videos, and publications, including our most recent publication in Clinical Therapeutics titled “Narrative Summary of Recently Published Literature on Intravenous Ibuprofen.” I'm going to link to that in the resources, in the show notes. I have to say through all these projects, you are one of the nicest and smartest people I have had the pleasure of working with. And just for the record, your wife did not tell me to say that. In addition, you and I share something else in common. We both, unfortunately, broke bones in 2020, just a few weeks apart during the pandemic. You got hit by a car. Isn't that right?
