From the Director

Thanks to our Chiefs for offering Chief Office Hours! Sign up for a time to chat about life with your chiefs!

Please note the time for our IM RES DUKE FAM photo! May 17 at 8 A.M. SHARP.  Details to follow, but we need to get that pic for the hall of fame!

Please pay attention to the many end-of-year-type emails – lots for the graduating SARs but also some boxes to check for rising JARs and SARs (like  signing your  contract!)

We are looking forward to the COVID-safe SAR-le-bration! Keep an eye out for details, SARs!

Kudos
Kudos this week to Eric Powers on his excellent SAR talk, to Chris Azusu on his awesome SAR talk, and Ruchi Doshi on her fantastic SAR talk! Also kudos to Anand Shah, Brittany Chapman and Vinay Choksi from Govind Krishnan for a great week on VA GM, to Brandon Durant from Casey Howe for excellent care of a patient at the DOC, to Roshni Dhoot from Shannon Herndon for handling a challenging conversation like a boss and also to Roshni from Grace Lee for handling a busy gen med day like a JAR, and to Shannon Herndon from Grace Lee for handling an extremely busy day with skill and grace, to Sandra Loriaux from Emory Buck for teaching how to do an ear irrigation, to Emmanuella Egbonim from Sarah Moserowitz  for triaging a very sick patient in the midst of a busy day, and to our SARs for being amazing (from Matt, but agreed upon by all of us!). And kudos to Colin Smith for being quoted in USA Today regarding COVID psychiatric manifestations!

Pubmed from the Program
This week’s pubmed from the program goes to Zachary Lorsch for his recent paper! Lorsch ZS*, Ambesi-Impiombato A*, Zenowich R, Morganstern I, Leahy E, Bansal M, Nestler EJ, and Hanania T (2021). Computational analysis of multidemensional behavioral alterations after chronic social defeat stress. Biol. Psychiatry 89:920-928.

Mandarin-Speaking Residents needed for Health Fair
APAMSA, the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association, at the Duke School of Medicine is looking for medical residents who speak Mandarin Chinese to volunteer with our Virtual Chinese Health Fair that is occurring Thursday May 27th from 3-5 pm virtually over Zoom. The Health Fair targets the local Chinese population in Durham and is being advertised via various community leaders.

The fair will start with multiple video lectures on relevant health issues in the Asian community (i.e. depression, COVID, diabetes) and will be followed by short one-on-one consults with doctors. Your responsibility would be to engage in these short 5 to 10 minute discussions with an individual or family to answer any questions about the lecture content or in general. You would be supervised under Dr. Amy Lee (Med-Peds). For more information please reach out to Nicky Chung nicky.chung@duke.edu.
