NC Pediatric Society

Rachel O’Brian, MD, a third year trainee in the Pediatrics Residency program, recently won third place for her poster entitled, “Dexamethasone versus Prednisone in the Treatment of Children with Acute Asthma Exacerbations," at the North Carolina Pediatric Society Annual Meeting on August 19 - 21 in Pinehurst. In addition, John Paul Shoup, MD, a junior assistant resident in the Medicine-Pediatrics Residency program; Victoria Parente, MD, an assistant professor in Hospital and Emergency Medicine; and Reid Chamberlain, MD, a first year cardiology fellow, won an honorable mention for their poster entitled, “Multimodal Intervention Improves Inpatient Discharge Process.”

The annual meeting is an excellent opportunity for residents to earn valuable CME credits, meet with colleagues, and learn about advances in research, clinical practice and practice management issues.  

Congratulations on these well-deserved awards and to all who presented!
