It’s already May! Thank you to everyone for your continued hard work to give the best care to your patients, your amazing participation in our online curriculum (many thanks Chiefs and ACRs for organizing), and your support of each other. Please see the email from Amanda regarding how the schedules will transition back to “normal” this month and next month. 

Welcome to the world Margot, and congratulations to proud and happy parents Caroline Sloan and Drew Eckstein. Everyone is healthy and doing great!

Many thanks to Dr. Danielle Brander for bringing Cocoa Cinnamon to the med res lounge and to Drs. Laura Svetkey, Kim Evans and Leonor Corsino for organizing and sponsoring Guasaca for the night teams on Friday!
