Have you made your travel plans for the 2015 Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting, May 2–6, in San Francisco yet? In “What’s New and Amazing at the 2015 Annual Meeting,” you’ll find even more reasons to go: more science, a live telesurgery session, “Appy Hour” to learn about clinically useful apps, an extraordinary President’s Program, and new colloquial debates on timely topics. And don’t forget to register before April 10 to get the early registration discount.
In this issue of ACOG Rounds, you’ll also find information about our Leadership Institute, which has served 350 leaders in its 10 years—including seven participants who went on to become ACOG presidents! Learn about the Congressional Leadership Conference, which recently completed its largest and most successful event, the Council on Patient Safety, and more.
Finally, please also take a few minutes to take the Liability Survey; the deadline has been extended to April 20. Data from this survey plays a critical role in educating lawmakers and the public about the liability crisis and its negative effects on women’s access to health care in our country.
