SCS News and Features

Our group is filled with talented people with diverse hobbies and interests, though they are not all common knowledge. The Section of Clinical Sciences Lunch and Learn series gives us an opportunity to learn what makes our colleagues tick outside of the office. Section members gather at “Rheumor Has It” – the sitting area in the middle of our suite, with a beautiful view overlooking the Emerald Necklace greenway – and enjoy lunch catered by a restaurant of the presenter’s choice. The series routinely draws a crowd of 25-30 Section members and generates lots of questions and laughter!
