Lessons/suggestions The meeting was up against the Emergency Medicine Interest Group's first meeting of the year ("Strange E.R. Cases"), but there was not a better date based on conflicting MS1 and MS2 schedules; MS1s actually had exams the very next week. We offered free lunch (pizza) but so did EMIG.
