On behalf of Dr. Elizabeth Wilmer

As many of you are aware, Elizabeth's husband, Wes, was struck from behind on his bicycle by a hit-and-run motorist last week and transported to UVA Medical Center. Wes sustained multiple fractures and a significant leg injury, but will thankfully make a full recovery. He is scheduled to be moved to a rehab unit today. Elizabeth is very grateful for everyone's support and offers of assistance. She plans to return to the office by mid-week.  Elizabeth has been updating me on a regular basis during this hectic time.  If you would like any additional information, please contact me in the ASA Office (7-7313).

Thank you.
