PittMed Wellness Orientation Event!

Yesterday was the PittMed Wellness kickoff event! We had an amazing time and turnout and wanted to thank everyone who came out and participated! For those of you who couldn’t make it to the event, we hope to see you next time. In the meantime, check out pictures from yesterday’s event below :)

Our Wellness Event began with a yoga class led by PittMed’s own Patrick Polsunas (MS2). Before coming to medical school, Patrick acted as a yoga instructor. He has been teaching for over 10 years. Thank you for coming out Patrick!
