My First WNYPAA Meeting

I attended my first WNYPAA meeting on Wednesday.  Dr. Arvind Gupta from Pennsylvania State College of Medicine spoke about new FDA approved therapy with Dificid and Cubicin for treatment of MRSA and Clostridium difficile, respectively. Brought back memories of working in microbiology and all the MRSA (and a few VRSAs) and C. difficile that we dealt with there.

The venue was the 31 club in downtown Buffalo.
Beautiful restaurant and good food!

I sat with three students from the PA program at Daemen College.  They related their experiences as fourth year students in the five year bachelors/Masters program. Nice kids--I hope to see them again at another meeting.
