Thank you for all that you do!

Chris and Chuck, I want to thank you so much for creating this podcast which has provided me the opportunity to listen and learn about the hand and upper extremity over the past year and half while I study for my CHT. I am happy to announce that I have successfully passed my CHT exam on the first attempt. Listening the to Upper Hand podcast helped me to understand the surgeon’s perspective. I really enjoyed and appreciated the collaboration episodes and discussions with Macy. You helped me make my studying experience more interactive and I have learned a great deal from you both. Thank you for answering my questions I had along the way while I studied for my exam. I plan to continue to listen and learn to the Upper Hand podcast as I continue into my professional career as a CHT.
