Plan of the Week: September 3rd - September 9th

Updated: Sep 7, 2023

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week to Dr. Connor Liggett and Dr. Genesis James who came up to 6th deck while on ward nights to attend the delivery of a preterm infant with meconium-stained fluid and was found to have a true knot!

Shout out to Dr. May and Dr. Mulreany (Cardiology), who helped lead a session at WCPCCS on "Teamwork, Culture Change, and Strategy". The session had over 250 people in attendance, and included panelists from Boston Children's, Children's National, Columbia University, and international pediatric leaders. Excellent representation for the program!
