On behalf of LMSA Southeast board, we would like to thank host speakers, workshop leaders, students, physicians, and advocates who contributed to making this year’s annual conference in Chapel Hill, NC a huge success! It was a pleasure welcoming you to Chapel Hill, NC and to the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.
We hope you were able to take advantage of the multitude of activities throughout the conference. More importantly, we hope your experience was filled with opportunities for personal growth, networking, learning, and overall fun! We would like to take this time to thank the staff at the William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education for providing an exceptional venue. We would also like to thank Duke University School of Medicine for hosting Saturday evening’s Gala Dinner. We had a wonderful time dancing the night away.
This year, we had two fairs at this conference, one of which was targeted towards high school students. The fairs were well received by attendees and we hope to continue a relationship with each program participant in our next conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Lastly, we would like to congratulate our scholarship recipient, Oscar Garcia; as well as our poster finalists, Amanda Hernandez, Alexandra Rodriguez, Alex Gertner. Thank you for allowing us to share our passion and our conference with you.
