I hope you all had a splendid memorial day weekend! We are excited to announce that we will have a guest-speaker joining our discussion tomorrow, Tuesday, May 31st in the Health Sciences Building T530 from 4:30-6:00pm! We are thrilled and honored to have Dr. Benjamin Wilfond lead us in a discussion about a few cases related to his experience in pediatrics. This will be a discussion you won’t want to miss!
