Brant and Helms and Wine Club - July 2012
Each week the residents sample wine from a selected European wine region, while tasting some local food, and listening to a lecture from the core radiology textbook: Brant and Helms. We traveled together to Rioja-Northern Spain, Alsace-France and Italy. We tasted some local goat cheese from the Shadow Brook and Branched Oak Farms, with some greens from Dr. Schubert's backyard garden.
Our program is proud to send six residents this year to present their research projects at the following national radiology meetings:
