Young members escape from routine at first YPS event
WSRS’ newest initiative is a Young and Early Career Professionals Section (YPS). The board has appointed two YPS co-chairs of this new ad hoc board committee that is charged with serving the needs of professionals under 40 or within their first eight years after training. Dr. Diana Lam, of the University of Washington, and Dr. Brad Fehrenbach, of TRA-MINW, are the co-chairs. In addition, Dr. Som Prabhu, our YPS representative to the ACR and other young physicians on the board, are helping to reach their colleagues and encourage their participation.
The first WSRS Young and Early Career Professional Section (YPS) event was a success, with our members working together to solve hidden puzzles during an escape room event. Although they were not able to escape, they had a lot of fun trying to accomplish the task as a team.
The next YPS event will be a dinner and program at Wild Ginger in downtown Seattle on Saturday evening, January 27, 2018. Arrival 6:30 – 7 p.m. Dinner and program at 7 p.m. The guest speaker will be Brian Torgerson, a certified financial planner offering tips on financial planning for young physicians.
There is no cost to attend and a complimentary dinner is included. Members under 40 or within their first 8 years after training are encouraged to attend. Please RSVP by 1/22/18 via email: email@example.com and mention any dietary restrictions.
