The winners have been announced for this year's Choosing Wisely Day competition.
Choosing Wisely is an initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine that aims to empower patients to ask questions about their care and to encourage physicians to consider all of the data before ordering unnecessary tests.
The virtual event began with a keynote discussion from Amit K. Pahwa, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Afterwards, students presented their research posters on topics related to high-value care and competed in an interactive competition-style innovation contest.
