The department had a great turnout this past weekend at the annual Welcome Picnic at Shillito Park. The event is a great opportunity to enjoy time outside work and to meet our new faculty, residents, and their families. The children enjoyed the nearby playground and residents and faculty spent time playing hoover ball and Frisbee.
University of Kentucky, Department of Emergency Medicine faculty, Drs. Roger Humphries, Sameer Desai, Craig Carter, and JoAnn Short, RN, Nurse Clinical Research III/UKHC, are collaborators on the POINT research journal article, Clopidogrel and Aspirin in Acute Ischemic Stroke and High-Risk TIA. The POINT trial is a partnership between the Clinical Coordinator Center (CCC) based in the UCSF Stroke Sciences Group (SSG), and the NINDS NETT Network.
Our program recently hosted our fourth annual emergency medicine resident retreat at Red River Gorge. The retreat focused on wellness and included didactics to help improve the residents’ roles as clinicians, educators, and mentors, and encouraged good group dynamics and collaborative relationships. Activities included lectures, procedures and ultrasound workshops, hiking, and GridlockED games @GridlockedGame
