Residents from UPMC St. Margaret’s, UPMC Shadyside, UPMC Mercy, Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center and Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Allegheny General Hospital submitted a total of 17 abstracts which were reviewed by council, and from that number, six were selected for oral presentation at the May 11 meeting.
