April 2016 Newsletter Article

Greetings Region 7,

We wrapped up the Southern Regional Meeting (SRM) in New Orleans in February. As always the meeting was great and well attended. The APA sponsored 2 exciting workshops: "Conflict Resolution: Lessons from Business, Diplomacy, and Theatre" and "How to Design and Give a Workshop". We also gave cash awards to 3 trainees for best Pediatric Clinical Case Presentations. The winners were John Sarandria, 1st Place, (Jacksonville, FL), Jennifer Gibson, 2nd Place, (Norfolk, VA), and Justin Farge, 3rd Place, (Jefferson, LA). Next year"s regional meeting will be held February 16-18, 2017 in New Orleans.

Now we are gearing up for PAS in Baltimore. For those of you who haven't registered, you may do so at the following link: The Region 7 breakfast/business meeting will be held on Monday, May 2nd from 7:00am - 8:00am in the Hilton Baltimore Hotel, Key Ballroom 9. We are excited that Dr. Gusic (APA President) will be dropping by to say a few words. We will send out an email closer to the conference with some of the other APA events you may want to attend.

Lastly, after some discussion at the SRM we have decided to extend our quarterly newsletter (TOAL Tales) to include Region 8. TOAL stands for Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana so we will be looking for a new name. This will facilitate exposure of our submissions to 10 states. You may send any submissions for the newsletter to Adam Wolfe,

Look forward to seeing you soon,
Your Region 7 Co-chairs
