Regional SGIM 2019!

Please join me in congratulating all of our amazing residents and faculty who presented posters at this weekend’s Regional SGIM Meeting in LA (pictures attached!)  We also had several students presenting work conducted at Highland with Jenny Cohen! In addition, Jessica Bloome and I presented a workshop on Hepatitis C Treatment and Access to coincide with the meeting’s theme of advocacy.
