Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Faculty Connection, LLC – a consulting group made up of Medicine faculty members Danny BenjaminRob CaliffChris O'ConnorKevin Schulman and Ken Lyles, as well as former Duke faculty member Bob Harrington – once again will donate a portion of their profits to the Department of Medicine to help support resident research projects.

"We are glad to be able to make a small contribution to our Medicine Resident’s careers," said Dr. Lyles on behalf of the group. They have donated $30,000 this year.

Faculty Connections gave $25,000 in 2012, and $22,500 in 2011.  Those funds helped support many of the projects presented at the Resident Research Night in 2013 and 2012.

"This is such a strong show of support for our house staff," acknowledged Mary Klotman, MD, chair of the department, in a message to the group.

"Thank you for encouraging and supporting our house staff to pursue research projects, which continue to be of high quality and quite successful," added Aimee Zaas, MD, MHS, program director for the Internal Medicine Residency Program.
