From the Director

Happy thanksgiving week to all! Many thanks to ResCo for bringing the #DukeFam spirit to all, to the SARs for covering for our JARs so we could have a great “JAR Time Out” mini-retreat on Tuesday and to our chiefs and team for bringing the HYPE with the holiday season HYPE calendar.  In our unpacking, I found both the Hanukkah sweater that Dr Van Kirk bought me a few years ago AND the Cleveland Browns ugly sweater that is really Dave’s but has made a few appearances during IM Res holidy sweater week … so if you need a holiday sweater for holiday sweater day…well, look no further than your chance to rep the sad sad Cleveland Browns.

Please keep up with the THANKS-RX-athon! No better month than November to THANKS Rx your colleagues for the great work they do.
