Duke Anesthesiology hosted its 31st Annual American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Alumni Event at Lafayette’s Music Room in Orlando, Florida – a local staple for live music – bringing together faculty, trainees, staff, alumni, donors and friends for a night of celebration.
Two anticipated highlights of the evening were the silent auction of Duke signed basketballs and the reveal of the 2020 DREAM Innovation Grant (DIG) recipients: Drs. Andrey Bortsov, Katherine Martucci and Mary Yurashevich. DIGs are part of the Duke DREAM Campaign; they support innovative high-risk and potentially high-reward investigations to accelerate anesthesia and pain management research. Thanks to the winning bidders, $2,450 was raised to benefit the department’s Global Health Program. Those donations directly support residents’ global health missions.
Forty-three Duke Anesthesiology faculty and trainees participated in the five-day ANESTHESIOLOGY Annual Meeting 2019, which included 86 departmental lectures, workshops, panel discussions, presentations, and more.
