2017 Annual Chapter Meeting

Hilary J. Boone Center at the University of Kentucky
Friday, September 8, 2017

Our 2017 Annual Meeting is scheduled for Friday, September 8, 2017 at the Hilary J. Boone Center at the University of Kentucky. The focus of the meeting will be training the next generation of surgeons, and the importance of advocacy on a local and national level.  We have confirmed our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Patricia Turner, Director of the Division of Member Services of the ACS, who will talk about The Surgical Workforce: Generational Change and Innovation.  In addition, Kentucky State Senator Dr. Ralph Alvarado, a staunch supporter of health-related legislation in the General Assembly, is scheduled to address us.
 

We will again hold the Resident Paper Competition in the afternoon, followed by a rematch of the Cats against the Cards in Resident Jeopardy. We are also planning a new Networking Fair to allow surgeons with potential positions available to meet and talk with other interested surgeons.

Please invite your colleagues and residents to attending this important networking and educational event.  Check your email in the coming months for details.
