Happy Holidays 2018 and Upcoming Events 2019!
The fall and winter have been a time of increased activities and growth for our chapter. Our last educational dinner featured Dr. Chris Sandrock , a speaker sponsored by La Jolla Pharmaceuticals , from UC Davis who discussed recent trials of Giapreza and clinial usage of this drug. UC Davis was one of the study sites for the ATHOS-3 Trial and Dr. Sandrock shared his experience in using this new vasopressor at the bedside.
In the near future , we will be conducting elections for new officers of the Norcal Chapter of SCCM . You should be receiving information on this via email with the ability to vote electronically. If you do not receive information by the end of the year, please email [email protected]
