From the Director

It’s the first day of FUN-bruary! What? You didn’t know this was a thing? Well, of course it’s a thing. We didn’t plan for freezing rain, but otherwise, we are ALL IN for a great month. Be on the lookout for treats, some trivia and challenges (gen med haiku, anyone?), candy grams, memes, Adopt-a-Resident and more! Plus, National GME Week (also, who knew?) just so happens to fall during FUN-bruary so Duke GME has some fun things planned as well. 

Plus, we are done with recruitment, so that is all the FUN-bruary I need right now. Super psyched to get ready for an amazing match.
