Kelly Day | June 9, 2017

Kelly Day serves as the annual alumni and research weekend of Emory’s Department of Orthopaedics. The program is two days in length, consisting of research presentations and awards banquet Friday. A guest professor is invited each year from around the country to serve as guest of honor, judging resident research presentations and delivering several talks on clinical topics of interest.
