Dominican Republic Section report

Ann L. Honebrink, MD, District III vice chair

On October 8, the Dominican Republic Section held its first educational symposium in Santo Domingo. More than 160 people attended this daylong event! Milciades Albert-Fiorinelli, MD, section chair, organized the successful program with Alejandro A. Paradas-Caba, MD, section vice chair.

Five speakers presented on 10 different topics. The speakers were Thomas Westover, MD, New Jersey Section secretary-treasurer; Audrey A. Merriam, MD, District III Junior Fellow chair; Vivian Brache, MS, and Raul Sanchez, MD, from the Dominican Republic; and me. We hope this will be the first of many Dominican Republic Section-sponsored events hosted in the Dominican Republic.
