Who are you? What defines you? Is it the title on your I.D. badge, the initials after your name? Or is it your role as a parent, a friend, or a teacher? Our identity is complex and ever layered, comprised of the multiple roles we take on throughout our lifetimes and the intermingling of other mental and physical facets. This is particularly true in healthcare: a physician, a nurse, or a pharmacist often take on responsibilities outside of their fields, and find identity within other aspects of life and the world. Patients also have complex identities, with “patient” often being a transient or interweaving role in these individuals’ lives. For the 2018 publication of Wild Onions, our theme is “Identity”, and what that entails for each member of the Penn State Health community.
