July 2016 Newsletter Article

Hello Region 4 members!

Another successful Region 4 breakfast meeting at PAS 2016 is in the books!  It was a great time to catch up with friends, make new connections, and get the latest updates and happenings from our region's institutions. It was also time to say "Thank You" to Carl Seashore who tirelessly led and served our region for the past three years. A plaque of gratitude was presented to Carl at the breakfast.  Dr. Melissa Long was elected to replace Carl as the incoming region co-chair.

Melissa Long, MD is a pediatrician at the Children's Health Center in Washington, DC. She received her medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco and completed her pediatric residency at Johns Hopkins. She has been on faculty at the Goldberg Center for Community Pediatric Health at Children's National Health System since 2012 and is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. In addition to teaching medical students and residents in the outpatient setting, her academic work focuses on mental health integration in pediatric primary care. She was a project lead on a recent quality improvement project designed to implement routine mental health screening at the Children's Health Center. She has also been active in Region IV of the Academic Pediatric Association, serving on the annual meeting planning committee for the past three years.

Dr. Long will join Drs. Megan Tschudy and Clifton Lee to carry out the Region IV business and represent the region in the Academic Pediatric Association. Congratulation and welcome, Melissa!

Finally, please SAVE THE DATE!  The Region 4 conference will be held February 11-12, 2017 in beautiful Charlottesville, VA (note: this is a change from what was announced at PAS).  Look for more details to come in the early fall.

Have a great summer, stay safe, and don't forget the sun screen!
Megan Tschudy, Cliff Lee, and Melissa Long
