Details

Established in 2006, the Richardson/Lang Day (renamed from formerly J.C. Richardson Day and officially announced in June 2018) is an annual half-day afternoon event to various subspecialties where faculty members were asked to present in either a debate or a "what's hot" format. This event was meant to be lighthearted as our faculty discuss opposing arguments.
