The Department of Surgery hosted its inaugural Summer Picnic on Sunday, July 14, 2019 for our faculty, residents, fellows, staff and their families. Those that attended were welcomed with Department of Surgery logo blankets—perfect for sitting in the lawn for a picnic! The event included two food trucks, many homemade side dishes and desserts, a snow cone machine, and plenty of activities for kids and adults alike such as giant Jenga, corn-hole, beach balls, face painting and so much more! Chair Doug Wood briefly spoke about the unique community that we have within the Department, and honored past Chair Carlos Pellegrini for his contributions past and present to the Department. It was wonderful to see so many of you with your families in a relaxed atmosphere—we can’t wait to do it again! (Click photos for larger view)
