Plan of the Week: April 21st - April 27th

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Dr. Genesis James, who got a champagne tap at the Children's ED on a neonate. Awesome job Genesis!

Play of the week to Dr. Daniel Rochford, Dr. Connor Liggett, and Dr. Brandon Neal, who volunteered at the USUHS Second Look Recruitment Event last week. Great work guys!

Additional play of the week to Dr. McKenzie Bowling, who completed C4 this past week!

Huge shout out to Dr. Alexis Ghersi, who filled in as Acting Chief this past week. On Thursday, the internet in 2525 went out, and Alexis pivoted seamlessly and on the fly worked to get a projector and finish the lecture. Thank you!
