Kaiser Graduation

On Sunday June 28th, six resident physicians completed their training and received their certification as family practice physicians. Their training through Kaiser includes a regular rotation here at the Free Clinic. The festivities were held at the Renaissance Hotel in Agoura Hills. The event was attended by the friends and families of the physicians as well as representatives from the Free Clinic. In the picture above are Dr Jeffrey Caputo, Dr Bonnie Chung, Dr Marisol Luna-Pizano, (Unknown guest) Dr Jennifer Haggerty, Dr Linnlee Sam, and Dr Sarvenaz Saadat.

This evening also marks the end of Dr Steve Rogers term as the Attending Physician for Kaiser he will move on the be the Attending Physician for Ventura County Medical Center. He hopes and we hope that he will eventually manage to get resident physicians to come here from the County in a similar manner to Kaiser. No matter what though, he will continue to be a volunteer physician here at the Free Clinic. Thanks Dr Rogers!
