Plays of the Week:

Happy Sunday! Of note, I will be in and out this week, and will be on Leave on Thursday and Friday (April 18th and 19th). Dr. Alexis Ghersi will be Acting Chief, please contact her with any Morning Report or Immediate Scheduling needs. I will be available via phone and email all week.

Play of the week to Ms. Putney, Dr. Amy Davis, and Dr. Cooper, who all brought in glasses so the whole 4th Floor could experience the Solar Eclipse.

Additional play of the week to Dr. Noelle Molter, who had her write-up on her experience on the Mercy published in the SOPT Blog. Awesome work Noelle! She also shared the how-to document for getting published, which is located below under the "Research" Section.
