Hey PRSIGers, this is just a reminder that the suture clinic is tomorrow from 6-730 in the Plastics conference room (McCullough 6.134). This is a great opportunity to learn to suture from the plastics residents and to prepare for surgery clerkships and beyond. Don’t miss out!
The Plastics department will be hosting a visiting professor (Dr. Wexler) this week. Please attend if you are able to. He will be speaking at the plastics conference room on the 6th floor of McCullough tomorrow (Nov. 10th) at 3PM and on Tuesday (Nov. 11) all day.
Every year, the PRSIG and the Plastic Surgery Department at UTMB gets very involved in the D’feet Breast Cancer 5K run, the proceeds of which go towards breast cancer research. This year’s event will take place at Moody Gardens at 6AM on Saturday October 18. We are asking for both volunteers and individuals to race. It is possible to race AND volunteer for this event. The cost to race is $35 until September 2, so if you want the early bird price now is the time to sign up. I have already formed a team this year so when you register, make sure to sign up on the PRSIG team! The link to register is:
Click on “Adult 5K Certified Run – Team Member.” When prompted to select a team, choose “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Interest Group.” Information about volunteering and a sign up sheet to volunteer will be emailed at a later date. We appreciate your participation and help in making this event a success!
