Howzit Region 7!!!

Wow, it’s June and we’re getting into summer.  Six months of 2021 has already gone by, half the year is over.  One third of the Major League Baseball has already been completed and the NBA has started their playoffs.  Before you know it the National Football League will be rolling along.  Enjoy life!!!

At this point I hope that a majority you have already been vaccinated.  But, we still need to vigilant and not completely let our guards down.  Many of the pandemic PPE/supply problems have been drastically reduced, but it’s not where anyone can feel “safe”.  Please stay vigilant with the next different waves of Covid-19 variations spreading around the United States and the world.  Ensure that you’re protecting yourselves to the fullest.  Stay safe and take care!!!

Meetings for Region 7…

Because of ongoing pandemic and restrictions, the Hawaii Meeting will again be a virtual one.  I’m coordinating a 4 CE virtual meeting on Sunday, August 8th starting at 0800 Hawaii Time.  Tentative speakers are: a number of students from the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) who will be going into Anesthesia and Cindy Ku, MD. – ERAS.  I’m trying to secure the last speaker and will be posting an agenda by the end of June.  The earliest that Region 7 could probably have a live/face to face meeting will be in 2022. (I’m hoping).

ASATT is still moving forward with our live Annual Meeting September 23-25, 2021 in Fort Worth, Texas.  This is President Greg Farmer’s home town and we hope to have many “new” and exciting changes for everyone to enjoy while earning your much needed CE’s.  Think about attending this event.

Don’t forget… It’s time for Region 7 to nominate and elect the Region 7 Director.  If you’re interested please check the ASATT website for further details.

PLEASE BE SAFE AND PROTECT YOURSELVES…

Aloha,

Delbert
