Congratulations to Dr. Aura Jeannette Arenas Morales (Nephrology) on receiving the Excellence in Teaching Award this afternoon from the residents at Blank Children’s Hospital!
Dr. Arenas is University of Iowa faculty, but sees patients full time at Blank Children’s Hospital. It’s a great honor to have her represent the teaching excellence that is supported through this unique collaboration between the University of Iowa and Blank Children’s Hospital. The residents have provided great feedback to her knowledge and support she has provided to them both in the clinic and inpatient realms.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend a celebration of providing 10 years of service by the Pain and Palliative Care Program. Join the team on Tuesday, June 18 between 12:00-3:00 for refreshments in the children’s hospital lobby, just next to Nick’s Theater.
Dr. Ravi Ashwath (Cardiology) was featured over the weekend in an article about 3-D printing of replacement organs and future applications in this innovative and groundbreaking opportunity within the healthcare field.
In honor of the AAP Advocacy Campaign “Advocacy Adventure”, the Pediatrics Residency Program has partnered with United Action for Youth in Iowa City. They recently were able to donate money from current residents and attend the Festival of Flowers.
If people would like to know about volunteering events they can reach out to the AAP Representatives Kaitlin Stein, Rachel Segal, and Sriya Subramani, or staff Michael Colburn
