On February 10 and 11, twenty-eight LOCUS (Leadership Opportunities with Communities, the Underserved and Special populations) fellows, faculty and staff gathered at the Bethel Horizons Center in rural Dodgeville for the first overnight retreat since the Fall 2003. Although it was cold outside, the large fireplace kept everyone nice and warm. Cindy Haq, MD and Aimee Cunningham-Walsh, Med 2, showed their adventurous spirit by cross-country skiing before and after the retreat.
The retreat's agenda included an interesting Public Health Skills Workshop presented by Pat Remington, MD, MPH, Director of the Population Health Institute at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. Dr. Remington, who stayed for the entire two days, serves as an advisor to the LOCUS Program. The fellows also had an opportunity to develop their personal mission statements after a reflection exercise led by Dr. Haq. We all enjoyed the meditation exercise and "getting-to-know you activities" led by LOCUS fellows.
