From the Director
Missed you all while away on vacation :)
Looking forward to our ACRs taking on LEADS conference this week! I hope many of you had a chance to hear our former Duke IM Chief Dr. Dinushika Mohottige give Medicine Grand Rounds on Friday! If not, definitely worth watching. Don't forget Medicine Grand Rounds will be at noon this Friday!
Kudos this week to Jon Johannessen, Stefana Voicu, Yajaira Jimenez and Hannah Schewennesen from the 7100 nurses for excellent work during a difficult overnight situation, to Katelyn Seale from Omar Martinez-Uribe for going above and beyond in PRIME clinic, to Liz Kobe, Jon Demis, Daniel Nwosuccha and anesthesia intern Stefana Voicu from Hannah Schwennesen for awesome work on cards nights and to Megan Barrett for an outstanding SAR talk.
