At the poster session of the inaugural IPHAM Population Health Forum, five Second Opinions teams presented posters of SO projects to students, physicians, and faculty of the Northwestern medical community.

Second Opinions member and fourth-year medical student Noah Weingarten presented an overview of Second Opinions as an innovation in medical education at the 2018 Feinberg Medical Education Day, a yearly conference co-organized by the Feinberg Academy of Medical Educators (FAME) and the Augusta Webster, MD Office of Medical Education (AWOME). "As a result of the success of Second Opinions, I would encourage the proliferation of student-led healthcare consulting at other schools.”

HMPRG is a Chicago-based nonprofit dedicated to health equity in Illinois, and its annual awards recognize "leaders whose work exemplifies [its] mission." Congratulations, Cecil!
