From the Director

Thanks so much to our amazing ResCo for their redo of the 8253 library/workroom/amazing space – work by Sandra Loriaux, Emory Buck, Allison Taylor and Kristin Corey.  If you haven’t been by, go check it out! While you are there, drop off some canned goods for the food drive!  Keep your sleeves rolled up for the GME Blood Drive as well (this time I am getting the timing right to actually hype it BEFORE it happens).   And on Friday, there is the ResCo secret santa gift exchange! So much holiday HYPE, with sweaters too.

Kudos

Kudos this week to Gregg Robbins-Welty for his award winning moustache, to our My Take crew of Jackie Kercheval, Anand Shah, James Helzberg, Shivy Chandramouli, Emory Buck, and Ann Cameron Barr as well as our dinner crew of Hannah Schwennesen, Mike Ibrahim, Katie Jordan, Tyler Couch, Amanda Broderick, Ben Kellogg, Matt Townsend, Harrison Matthews, Garret Johnson, Audrey Zhang, Hubie Haywood, Hayley Cunningham, Ryan Duffy and Peggy Sahu!  More Kudos to Nicole Dussault, MJ Obeid and Lauren Pinion for their sweater game, to Nijat Aliyev from Grace Lee for great work on DRH Nights, to Hannah Florian from Sean Taasan for being an amazing VA MICU doc, to the CAD nights crew of Angela Li, Gracie Ernstberger, Maria Minor and Ben Berger from Kathryn Clary for being fantastic docs and colleagues, and to Matt Goodwin for a fantastic Cohen Conference..

Pubmed from the Program

This week’s pubmed from the program goes to Jo Cavalier for her AHA presentation that got picked up and publicized by “The Pulse!”  Awesome work!https://www.healio.com/news/cardiology/20211130/ehr-data-reveal-red-flag-comorbidities-years-before-cardiac-amyloidosis-diagnosis

Have a great week!
