A brunch for all seasons

This past year, Adys Mendizabal (Class of 2020 and social chair), started a new Penn Neurology tradition of monthly resident brunches. Over the course of the year, neurology residents and fellows have sampled from the diverse Philadelphia food scene, including Mexican, American, Lebanese, and Indian cuisines  Scheduled after noon, the weekend gathering has been an event that post-call residents could attend to relax after a night of work. Beyond great food and fun, Adys reports that the gathering has served as an unofficial place for peer-to-peer mentoring. And, for those new to Philadelphia, it has been an excellent opportunity to explore the city and bond with classmates.

Andrea Fuentes (Class of 2021) has taken over as social chair and has plans to not only continue brunch club, but expand the set of events beyond the city.
