Join the CVTeam each month as we hear from one of our own CVTeam leaders about a study that will help you in the evaluation and care of patients. After a review of the article we will use the Zoom breakouts to form small groups so we can have the valuable back and forth discussion that translates science into action in clinic. See the articles below that will be discussed. Although there is no charge for this event for members, we do ask that you register for each session you are able to attend so we can send you the Zoom link 24 hours prior to the meeting and properly add you to a discussion group. Please note: an application has been submitted for CEUs for each session and you must register for each session separately per CEU rules.
Summer seems to be almost upon us so let’s celebrate its almost return with a Rose! We recommend finding a value bottle from the Cote d’Azur or Provence regions in France in the $10-15 range. Some of the American attempts at rose can be sweet, but those from these regions of France will mostly likely have the classic dry taste of red current with some peppery notes. If you are pairing with dinner, a chicken or fish (such as a seared tuna) would be nice - a nicoise salad would be a classic touch and a salute to the summer that is before us. If you are looking for cheese reach for a soft one: Havarti or Gruyere would be good bets. And either way - grab a baguette!
Looking for a refreshing mocktail? Try this grapefruit spritzer from the magazine Real Simple. Its color is reminiscent of an Aporol Spritz. Foods that will go best and bring out the grapefruit will include black pepper, basil and vanilla. Can’t you taste some fresh mozzarella with cracked pepper and basil on top?

In the before times, there were several Journal Clubs around the Commonwealth that met in restaurants for dinner and discussion several time a year. Gathering for information and camaraderie were equally important because there is nothing like relaxing with colleagues to get into debates and real world examples.
To add a bit of levity to this club we will be suggesting some beverage pairings; will you join the call with the suggested wine and cheese? or maybe you will have a sparkly non-alcoholic beverage with a take-out meal! We will make the suggestions and you can show off in your small group.
Making this a place for discussion and getting to know each other over zoom via food and tasting might just make this slightly reminiscent of how we used to operate.
