Play of the Week:
Play of the week goes to our new class of interns starting their first day of residency this past Friday!
Play of the week also goes Dr. Connor Liggett, who gracefully took the NICU head-on on day 1 and led a very difficult family discussion with composure, compassion, and empathy. Most impressive!
And another Play of the Week for Dr. Theresa Urbina’s beautifully worded FEATURED Perspective article came out today in Pediatrics! Fair warning: you’ll need a tissue!
