Many members of our residency program (me included) are enthusiastic runners in races all over the country. At the Boston Athletic Association 10K this summer, I was joined by a number of residents seeking to take me up on my offer of buying a drink for anyone who finishes before me... and almost all of them did. In addition to coming together for races, our residents stay active by participating in various outings and activities organized by the resident-led Wellness Committee.
Our local alumni were also active this summer at our 2nd Annual Alumni BBQ. Alumni, friends, colleagues and their families reunited for an afternoon of good food and fun in Boston's Franklin Park Zoo. Thank you to all who came out and supported the event. We'll see you at our next alumni event - this time in Philadelphia! Details included below.
As many of you remember, fall means retreat season. And yes, the Interns still camp in the Warren Conference Center cabins and the Juniors are still hosted at Dr. Sheilah Bernard's home. Check out below for some pictures from present and past retreats - see if you can spot your class!
Our spotlights this issue are PGY 3 resident Dr. Leah Harvey and alum from the class of '08, Dr. John Ryan. Dr. Harvey is a member of the Primary Care track and the HIV Medicine Pathway, and recently matched here at BMC for ID/addiction medicine fellowship. Dr. Ryan is an international renowned specialist in pulmonary hypertension and a Director in the University of Utah's Division of Cardiovascular Medicine.
