Last night, Channel 12 aired a story featuring Dr. Vijay Kannan, an Emergency Medicine Resident at Maricopa Medical Center, who recently won top honors for developing a disease surveillance project that identified a dense pocket of flu patients in a neighborhood just southeast of the hospital. He and other ED residents (Nicole Hodgson, PGY-2; Anthony Guynes, PGY-2; Samantha Myers, PGY-2) as well as Aimee Mishler, PharmD, teamed up with Phoenix Fire to vaccinate these pockets of unvaccinated adults.

Dr. Hannah Malashock, current senior resident, gave a talk on drugs of abuse to the Scottsdale Psychological Society. She covered a wide range of topics including bath salts, spice, ketamine, ethanol withdrawal, and methamphetamine. She also gave a formal presentation about emerging drugs of abuse, which was primarily about the role of the internet and the international nature of drug distribution, with several examples.
