ASA Annual Meeting

The annual anesthesiology meeting was held October 22-26, 2016 in Chicago, Il.  Our faculty, residents, and fellows were involved in many aspects of the meeting.  We presented cases, abstracts and PBLDs.  The residents also hosted a table and fielded questions from medical students.
