From the Director

We hope you all had a chance to enjoy some time with family and friends this Thanksgiving. The many “Friendsgiving” celebrations were great to hear about, and Turkey Bowl was an epic one for the ages.  Seriously the best turnout of spectators, including the very first (but not last) tailgating! Great athleticism and sportsmanship on the field, and the refs were pretty good as well (a huge thank you to Drs. Corey, Cohen and Butterly for donning the stripes and excellent refereeing). ICYMI, the Jets were victorious and the Cohen Cup will have to restart it’s Instagram posting from various places at the VA. Until next year, anyway!

Many many thanks to those who helped out with the festivities, including fellows, attendings and residents who covered colleagues so they could go to the game (Sarah Goldstein, Joel Boggan, and many more that I am not aware of), to Anderson Shore (and Kerri!) for being the official photographer, to Anton arranging coverage from Duke Magazine, and to the faculty, fellows, families and friends who spent part of their Thanksgiving watching a bunch of residents have a really great time playing some excellent football. And a huge thank you to our awesome chiefs for getting everyone ready for the game, for getting the post-game food and for generally just outstanding leadership.

We are starting the semi-annual evaluations this week.  Thanks to all who have filled out the pre-meeting qualtrics so far. There are a few with no name so if you don’t remember putting your name on your entry, please re-do! We will send you a reminder before your meeting if we don’t have an entry from you.

Kudos

Kudos this week to Matt Labriola from Sam Linder for sending some articles to the gen med team while he was on endocrine consults, to our Monday My Take team of Madhu Eluri, Adam Brock, and Meg Dupuis and our tour guides Zach Il’Giovine, Luke Cerbin, Robert Diep, and Nathan Moulton​. And kudos to Francis Ugowe from Megan Dupuis for being an amazing night float, and coming in early to let the team go home on Thanksgiving.

PubMed from the Program

This week’s pubmed from the program goes to Lindsay Shantzer for her recent publication Ann Hematol. 2017 Apr;96(4):531-535. doi: 10.1007/s00277-016-2785-9. Primary myelofibrosis and its targeted therapy. Shantzer L1, Berger K2, Pu JJ3,4,5.
