2014 Residency and Fellowship Graduation Celebration

We had a wonderful group of residents and fellows complete training this year. Our graduation celebration, June 6 and 7, was full of activities, such as the Annual Chairman's Fun 5K Run/Walk, the Research Day presentations, the Annual Resident Roast, golfing at Pumpkin Ridge, and the DeWeese Society banquet.


It was a lovely weekend, and we wish our graduates the very best. Our residents Kara Detwiller, Renee Park and Lourdes Quintanilla-Dieck, and our fellows, Daniel Brickman, Jessica Peck, Karla O'Dell, Melynda Barnes and Adam DeConde will all be very successful in their future endeavors in practice, academics, and fellowships.
