From the Director

It’s a big week! Hope you all enjoyed some of the past weekend (including the most beautiful day for the Turkey Bowl!).  As we race into December, we have a lot going on this week as well – Fellowship Match happens Wednesday and our Res/Fellows holiday celebration on Friday.  Many thanks to Dr. Cooney, the DOM and our fantastic Med Res Team for putting this together.    Signups for half-yearly meetings with either Dr Hargett or me are in full swing so please remember to do this if you haven’t already (see email from Tia for instructions).
