From the Director

Hello Fam!

Welcome back everyone.  2022, let’s go! While things aren’t where we wish they would be regarding COVID, I am looking forward to an excellent second half of this academic year.  Hope you had an opportunity to rest a bit over the holiday break.  Recruitment starts up again Thursday so let’s finish January STRONG!

Please take a moment to read the IM Res ALL emails about conferences (Virtual), EOHW protocols, mid-year meetings, etc.  As we learn of any changes in how we may need to schedule things, we will keep you informed.

***NOTE Board Prep is now TUESDAY and COVID TOWN HALL is Wednesday.

Congratulations to Andrew and Kathryn Andreae on the birth of Skylar!  Also congratulations to Harsh Patolia on his engagement!

Also congrats to our DukeFam Marc Samsky and Sarah Goldstein on the birth of Wyatt and Ameila over the break!

Please also send a warm welcome to our new member of the Med Res Office Staff, Bridget Copen!
