It was a great time at the 2016 CADAH AGA.
CADAH held its 2016 Annual General Assembly (AGA) at the Tea Room of the Junior League of Houston on Sunday, April 17, 2016.
We heard a wonderful presentation on ‘Thermal Ablation of Brain Tumors’ by our very own Dr. Sujit Prabhu and presented our eight CADAH scholarship recipients for 2016.
We also recognized our outgoing board members and introduced our new board members.  Dr. Stephen Chao is the new CADAH president, and Dr. Spencer Su is the president-elect.  See below for results of this year’s CADAH elections.
The new CADAH directory for 2016 was distributed to the members in attendance.
