Plays of the Week:

Welcome to Block 9 and Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

Play of the week to Dr. Madeleine Mascitti and Dr. Brandon Neal who attended the MDAAP Advocacy Event. They interacted with members of state legislature and the APA. Great work getting involved in advocacy and representing NCC Peds!

Play of the week to Dr. Daniel Rochford, who successfully performed an LP and reduction of a nursemaid's elbow this past week on 3W.

Additional Play of the Week to Dr. Saxena, who rearranged the Adolescent Resident Room. Looking good!
