The AWS Metropolitan Washington DC Chapter held a summer social at
the home of Dr. Anjali Kumar. It brought medical students from
Georgetown, surgery residents from the local hospitals and a few
private practice surgeons together with members of the local AWS and
ACS chapter councils. Wine and cheeses were shared and a lucky dozen
got 10 minute chair massages from a CMT at Care Essence Massage. (Click
