Every week on your Y blocks we have dedicated time for you to work on quality improvement projects. This is a guided session where you will learn to choose a topic, devise a question, obtain data, create an intervention, study the outcome and write it up for submission to a conference.

So far we have been successful in getting numerous abstracts accepted at various local and national conferences. Here is a sampling of our work in the past couple years.
