From the Program

Thanks to all for another great week! We are looking forward to the Chair's Welcome Party on Aug. 23 at the Washington Duke Inn. Please RSVP by Aug. 12 (next Monday). See Paperless Post invitation in your email for more details.

Kudos
Kudos this week go to Bhavik Patel for excellent care of a very sick patient at the DOC from Caroline Sloan, to Ahmad Mourad for spotting and removing a tick (and collecting the evidence!) during cross cover night float duties from Suchita Shah Sata, and to Felicia Cao for excellent work on Duke Gen Med from Qasim Hussaini. Kudos to Tamara Saint-Surin for an excellent SAR talk, to Alex Sullivan and Kyle Geurink for sharing Maestro tips, and to John Davy for a great Chair's Conference!

Have a great week!
