Academic meeting (in the sun)

I just returned to London after attending the American Association of Hand Surgery’s Annual Meeting in Atlantis, Bahamas. As well as a sunny break in cold January, it was a brilliant opportunity to meet and personally interact with leaders in the field of hand surgery who i have always looked up to such as Dr Jessie Jupiter and Dr Scott Kozin. I was able to learn new techniques and also catch up with old friends from as far as Japan and Australia.
