Our daughter, Lisa Mielniczuk, a second year resident in Cardiology at the Ottawa Heart Institute, is visiting. During this visit, we shared in the joy of her receiving an invitation to present her research at an upcoming cardiovascular conference at Lake Louise in Alberta. One of four students selected, she will discuss her findings on the relationship between a particular echo-cardiogram observation and the presence of a blood clot in the lung.
To be together when she received the invitation and to share that moment with Verity, her partner, mom Sue, brother Simon, and sister-in-law, Beth was a moment to cherish and to note.
We look forward to hearing about the presentation and the feedback from her peers.
