The 25th Annual Rebecca S. Seignious Family Medicine Interest Day was held on August 23 at the Embassy Suites in Columbia, South Carolina. This event was sponsored by the Statewide Family Medicine Residency Directors, the South Carolina AHEC and the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians.  The purpose of this program is to stimulate interest and enthusiasm in the field of Family Medicine.

Ninety-five medical students from 15 medical schools attended the Interest Day.  The students began the day with a luncheon where they enjoyed the opportunity to network with members of the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians and faculty and residents from South Carolina’s Family Medicine Residency Programs.
