Four Western residents braved ice storms and broken bridges to take part in the 2018 MARC conference in Cincinnati!

Zach Hynes (PGY3), Beth Oeming (PGY4), Osama Sefein (PGY3) and Dan Szoke (PGY3) all gave poster presentations at this year's resident research competition, and brought home 2 prizes! All the four residents produced superb presentations that were a credit to them and their supervisors.
