We recently saw the movie “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” It’s a heartwarming film filled with touching moments about one-on-one connections, compassion, caring and forgiveness.

A hard-bitten reporter specializing in negative profiling is assigned to interview Mr. Rogers for an edition of his magazine devoted to heroes. It turns out that of the 100 nominated for the hero award, the only one who agreed to meet with this muck-raking reporter was Fred Rogers, the beloved child TV personality.

Dr. Victor S. Sierpina is the WD and Laura Nell Nicholson Family Professor of Integrative Medicine and Professor of Family Medicine at UTMB.
