  • Linden Pederson (class of ‘21) received an Award of Merit for Bone Fractures, a patient education poster.
Category: Didactic/Instructional — Surgical/Clinical Procedures
  • Andrea Lacy (class of ’21) received an Award of Merit for Cholecystectomy with Multiple Cystic Arteries, an illustrated procedure for a surgical atlas.
