Archive: Katelyn shared her residency exit collage with me

| June 3, 2014

Sometimes it good to have a place to archive odds and ends items before they are lost and in this case a slide from a Powerpoint presentation (click on photo for a larger image). From what I can tell, each resident at Nationwide Children’s Hospital has a slide announcing where they will be going and […]

Looks like my daughter will continue to get paid. Whew!

It has been an exciting few months watching her travel and listening to her comments regarding the different pediatric residency […]
