From the Director

I hope you all were (virtually) able to enjoy the Easter holiday if you celebrate.  

We continue to thank everyone for their dedication, support of each other and flexibility in these most unusual of times.

This week, we have Matt McCulloch's SAR talk on Tuesday, so get ready! We will also be resuming (virtual) Chair's Conferences and enter our second week of online resident and intern reports. 

The Zoom Noon conference series is awesome, and we are grateful to Dr. Josh Broder for teaching us about what is happening in the ED and Dr. Rahul Loungani for teaching us about COVID and the heart.

Kudos
Congratulations this week to Madhu Eluri and Anish Badjatiya, who got married earlier this year in India and were treated to a Zoom reception in lieu of their planned reception this past weekend. Many thanks to Keva Garg for organizing. In true Zoom fashion (a-hem), tuxes/jackets and shorts were the name of the game. 

PubMed from the Program
This week’s pubmed from the program goes to Lonnie Sullivan for his article "Videos to reduce racial disparities in ICD therapy Via Innovative Designs (VIVID) trial: Rational, design and methodology." American Heart Journal 220 (2020): 59-67. Thomas, Kevin L., Lonnie T. Sullivan II, Sana M. Al-Khatib, Nancy Allen LaPointe, Sam Sears, Andrzej S. Kosinski, Larry R. Jackson II, Valentina Kutyifa, and Eric D. Peterson.

Have a great week everyone and stay safe out there,
Aimee

Pickett Road has been operating a COVID-19 drive-up testing site for the last few weeks.  Internal medicine residents Nathan Hirshman, Matthew Harbrecht, and Anmol Singh have been instrumental in the roll-out and streamlined operations of the site.  We really appreciate everybody's flexibility and hard work!
