Durham, N.C– On May 20, 2015 four Duke University Medical Students were awarded the Anthony V. Seaber Student Fellowship Grant, a fund within the Piedmont Orthopaedic Foundation.  Anthony Seaber was a former Professor at Duke who passed away in July of 2010 and had no greater desire than to aid medical students.  The grant that these students received will help send them to orthopaedic meetings across the country to present new information found in the research laboratories.

Below we have listed the students who accepted the award and the works that they will be presenting when they travel.
