MedConnect Highlights
Washtenaw County Medical Society
MARCH 6, 2018
President Dr. Joseph Nnodim and Master of Cere- monies Dr. Evelyn Eccles introduced the evening’s program focused on encouraging WCMS members and medical students to learn, connect, and engage with one another in a meaningful and fun, new way.
The evening was broken up into four portions: the opening reception; a spirited medical trivia game powered by Kahoot!; a session of speed networking and mentoring; and finally a “TedTalk”-inspired presentation from Dr. James Ashton-Miller on “How Biomechanics Contributes to a Better Understanding of the Disease Process and Improved Patient Care.”
The overarching theme of the evening was encour- aging attendees, and particularly medical students, to interact with one another in non-traditional ways. This
was achieved by cultivating a fun and relaxed environment. M1 Sanjana Prasad fought hard to win 1st place in the trivia portion. During the speed mentoring and networking portion, medical students had a unique opportunity to consult with senior physician leaders on career advice. Dr. Ashton-Miller’s session provided an opportunity for attendees to consider four cases on the practical application of medicine.
The schedule of events for this MedConnect event reflected the WCMS Executive Council’s recent decision to rebrand the former General Sessions and focus on the “A, B, Cs” of medicine: activism, balance,
and connections.
WCMS sends a huge thank you to all of those who made this kickoff event of 2018 so successful!
