    We are looking forward to the 42nd Annual Carolinas/Virginias SCCM Scientific Symposium this June at the Hilton Myrtle Beach (Myrtle Beach, SC), and hope that you and your trainees will join us! The pre-conference pharmacology course will be held June 13 beginning at 1pm, and the symposium will take place the following day, June 14.
