From the Director

Really in the “home stretch” now. Kudos to Amanda, Lara, Jared and Caroline not just on a fantastic Medicine Grand Rounds but a really tremendous “unprecedented” year.  We are forever in awe of your leadership.

Checkouts for SARs with end-of-year vacations are beginning. Congratulations again on a tremendous three years! Thank you Tia for making this happen.

MS2’s are back on the wards. We are really excited to have them back as part of the teams. Please keep masking consistently in the team rooms!

Kudos
CONGRATULATIONS TO KATIE POLLARD AND ALEX SULLIVAN on your ENGAGEMENT!! We are so happy for you! Other kudos this week to Alex Sullivan, Katie Pollard and Tanmay Gokhale for awesome SAR talks and to Tim Hopper from the nursing team on 9100 for patient-centered care.

PubMed from the Program
This week’s pubmed from the program goes to Sean Chen for his article recently accepted to JAMA Internal Medicine Nanna MG, Chen ST, Nelson AJ, Navar AM, Peterson ED “Has the Inclusion Across the Lifespan Policy Affected Representation of Older Adults in Cardiovascular Disease Trials?” JAMA Internal Medicine (accepted).

Have a great week!

Clinic Corner: PRIME

Contributed by Sonal Patel and Leigh J. Wynkoop

Really happy to have our LPNs back in PRIME after their stints working on the inpatient side.

Welcome to our new social worker, Sernetra Webb. She is teleworking most days of the week but is likely on Skype most of the time. Also we have her cell # if you need to reach her.

We’re getting the details about a new drive-through vaccine clinic for patients to get some routine vaccines – can get the second/third dose in a vaccine SERIES but not the initial one if it’s a series. Ask your nurse for more info if your patient needs a vaccine.

On a bittersweet note, we are happy to see the seniors finish their time at  Duke and in PRIME Clinic, but it always is sad to see you go. All our best wishes for you as you launch into the next journey of your life!
