It’s been a busy first half of the year between traveling for work and traveling for fun. It’s great to be back on the road again on several wilderness adventures, but keeping up with the clinical shifts can be a challenge sometimes. I hope you all are back to adventuring as well and will have some good stories for me when we meet again in October. This year, we will be holding a special event for our Section members to get to socialize and relax away from the buzz of the conference – stay tuned for details. I look forward to seeing you all in Philadelphia!
