This Week 10/6

16th edition. Congratulations to House Kuehl! After the 10 point bonus for the Rosh Review Quizzes, they won the eye block crown. Moving into the Psych block, the scoring started over with a clean slate. For the annual house championship, the winning house will be most blocks won (9 total before June, with an extra 1 for in-service exam scores). 


Carilion ED Recycling Program – I included this again because it makes me happy. We had a very successful site with the material acquisition head of Trex Furniture last week and are set to become the FIRST health system in the country to sell plastic waste directly to their company. We ran the numbers are we are talking in the 10s of thousands of pounds annually of waste that otherwise would end up in a landfill. #gogreen   

Retreat Stuff – bring warm/outdoor type stuff to retreat. In the afternoon we are going to do an outdoor competition between the houses so pack accordingly. DK has requested NO SODAS BEFORE 4PM. On Thursday morning we are also going to be doing something outdoors for those interested.
