From the Residents...
“I was able to attend the NCPA annual meeting in Asheville due to the generosity of those who donated to The Foundation. During this meeting I was able to learn best clinical practices, present my research in the resident poster session, and meet other psychiatrists from around the state. Thank you for this opportunity and to the NCPA members who have made this possible. ” – Megan Pruette, M.D., PGY-4, VA Chief Resident, Duke University Health System
