The USCAP 109th Annual Meeting

Stanford Pathology was well represented at the recent USCAP annual meeting in Los Angeles this past week. In terms of numbers, there were: 5 specialty conference lectures (Dr. Yasodha Natkuna, Dr. Brooke Howitt, Dr. Kimberly Allison, Dr. Greg Bean, Dr. Megan Troxell), 4 short courses (Dr. Kimberly Allison, Dr. Megan Troxell, Dr. Christina Kong, Dr. Eric Yang), 5 oral platform presentations (3 trainees), 30 poster presentations (17 trainees and over 30 faculty mentors) and 1 moderated poster presentation (by Erna Forgo who won a Stowell-Orbison Award). There was a phenomenal turnout and reunion between past and present trainees at the Stanford reception and immense interest from potential future trainees at the fellowship fair both on Sunday, March 1st. Not to mention the fun time afterward during karaoke in Koreatown! Current trainees and faculty had a wonderful time at the annual Stanford Pathology dinner on Monday, March 2nd at The Stanton DTLA. Some basketball fans were also able to attend the Lakers game on Wednesday, March 4th at the Staples Center which was adjacent to the LA Convention Center. We look forward to representing Stanford Pathology again at next year's annual meeting in Baltimore.
