Congratulations Duke Anesthesiology Racing Team!

Congratulations to the Duke Anesthesiology Racing Team for finishing in first out of 32 teams at this year’s ASA Run for the Warriors 5K Race in Washington D.C.! Under the leadership of Dr. Ryan Fink, Duke surged into first by raising $12,451.00. The money raised will go towards supporting U.S. service members and their families who have been affected by injuries or death to defend our country.

Thank You for Another Stellar ASA

I would like to thank all of our alumni, faculty, staff and friends who were able to attend Duke Anesthesiology’s 24th Annual ASA Alumni Reception in Washington, D.C. Our reception was held in Union Station’s Columbus Club where our guests were greeted by a red carpet that was nicely illuminated with our Duke Anesthesiology logo for all at Union Station to see. Formerly the fancy soda fountain room, the Columbus Club’s beautiful clerestory windows and brass chandeliers that accented the hand painted traceries of classical Pompeian artwork was the perfect backdrop for our Duke friends and family to reconnect. The evening culminated with an awards presentation given by our Chairman, Mark Newman, MD and the announcement of our 2013 DREAM Innovation Grant (DIG) recipients delivered by our Vice Chair of Research, David Warner, MD. Please enjoy photos from the event here.

As we plan for next year’s Duke ASA Alumni Reception in San Francisco, CA, we would value your feedback on what you’d like to see at the event or a venue you would like to recommend. Please make your recommendations here!

A special thanks to all of the faculty who stayed behind to cover the OR’s and call coverage so that others could attend the ASA and to all of the staff who help me make the ASA Alumni Reception possible: Tiffany Nickel, Gloria Howard, Cheryl Stetson, Irene Kontje, Adam Hartz, and Chris Keith.

Thank you again for your support to Duke Anesthesiology! Below are a few highlights from this year’s ASA and Alumni Reception that we thought you might enjoy. We look forward to celebrating with you again next year in San Francisco!

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Perez, RN, BSN
