The First Day at ART

First Surgical Cases at Ashley River Tower

Today marked the beginning of cases at Ashley River Tower. The morning started with Grand Rounds by Dr. Arthur Schwartz from Mount Sinai discussing "Cerebral Hypothermia Past, Present and Future." Following the conclusion of the lecture, the ART team traveled to ART by the university bus system.
