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 photo for larger version.)
