Congratulations to South Carolina AHEC Resident Scholarship Symposium Participants and Winners

The South Carolina AHEC is pleased to recognize this year’s Resident Scholarship Symposium award winners. The annual South Carolina AHEC Resident Scholarship Symposium is held each year in conjunction with the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians’ (SCAFP) annual meeting. 

This year’s symposium on Isle of Palms featured 16 podium presentations and eight poster presentations. The presentations focus on research and quality improvement projects. They give residents an opportunity to engage with SCAFP members to discuss how these projects translate into practice.

The South Carolina AHEC would like to thank those who served as moderators and judges: chair and moderator  Dr. Lisa Mims (Trident/MUSC Family Medicine); moderator Dr. Alec DeCastro (Trident/MUSC Family Medicine); judges Dr. Cristin Adams (Trident/MUSC Family Medicine), Dr. Amanda Davis (AnMed Health Family Medicine), and Dr. Ed Evans (SCAFP Immediate Past President and Board Chair and Program Director, Seneca Lakes Family Medicine); and conference assistance by Dr. Marty Player (Trident/MUSC Family Medicine). 

A Chief Residents’ Seminar is held in conjunction with the symposium for physicians who will be chief residents during the 2018-2019 academic year. Symposium participants have the opportunity to attend SCAFP-sponsored events such as the wine and cheese networking, poster session and the award luncheon to network with academy members.

Congratulations to all of the abstract authors and award winners!
