Plan of the Week: Apr 23 - Apr 29

Updated: Apr 28

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Dr. Joseph Lopreiato, who was selected to the National Academy of Distinguished Educators in Pediatrics (NADEP). The selection process is highly competitive and occurs every three years. In a letter to Dr. Lopreiato, the NADEP committee wrote: “You have been chosen after careful peer review by expert NADEP members. The reviewers were impressed by the depth and breadth of your educational experiences, expertise and contributions to the field. You should be very proud of the fact that your years of commitment and hard work is being recognized by your peers in such an elegant manner.” 🎉

Play of the week goes to Dr. Cade Nylund, who was selected as this year's AOA Uniformed Services Chapter Faculty Mentor of the Year. 🎉

Play of the week also goes to Dr. Nicole Martin, who completed a champagne tap! 🍾

Play of the week goes to the NICU Fellowship, who enjoyed an academic field trip to the Multidrug-Resistant Organism Repository & Surveillance Network (MRSN) at WRAIR.

Thank you to those who helped cover the inpatient teams during the Residency Retreat: Drs. Urbina, Schulz, Groomes, Drumm, Friedman, Hepps, Ahmed, Bumgardner, and Whiteway. As well as our amazing PICU mid-levels: Mills, Harrison, and Lewis.

Last but not least, a BIG farewell to RN Charmoine Draughn, who has been part of the NCCPeds family since 2004. She will be moving on from the Pediatrics PCMH to Executive Medicine. Best of luck, you will be missed!!
