In athletes, an ACL tear is a season-ending injury. Female athletes, particularly soccer and basketball players, are more likely to tear their ACLs. Athletes with a torn ACL will be out for the rest of the season. In fact, it might be six months before they can return to play, says UVA orthopedic surgeon Mark Miller, MD.
This past weekend, Rachel Zrimm (BSN '17) and faculty mentor, Dr. Gina DeGennaro, were named VNA's poster winner for performance improvement! Kudos!
Their poster highlighted the work they did over the summer to paint a picture of what CCI has been doing in teaching resilience and self-care practices at the SON.
The UVA Medical Alumni Association looks forward to presenting a fun and informative program for first year medical students and their families on October 8. Attendees will hear from the four college deans, participate in a team-based learning exercise, tour the Claude Moore Medical Education Building and more. You can find details and register at UVAMedAlum.org/events.
Less than a week left until fundraising ends. Will you help us reach our $300,000 goal by September 30? Giving online is easy at womens4miler.com or drop off checks at Ragged Mountain Running Shop. Any gift, no matter the size, makes an impact.
Looking to set up a giving page to raise funds honoring a loved one? To recognize a special caregiver here at UVA Children's Hospital? Or even to mark a special occasion by giving to others? We have our own platform for that called Get Involved! There are no fees involved and ALL money you raise (your own way!) comes straight to the hospital.
Please visit our Get Involved page and see how easy it is to help the kids!
