Two years ago when I started rewriting the next chapter of my life story, I began looking more closely at the things that were bringing the most meaning and value to my life. One of those organizations rose to the top and that was ACOG. The relationships, opportunities and mentoring I have received through ACOG have helped shape my personal and professional life. Providing a future gift for ACOG is a way to give back, show my support and admiration for ACOG and the work they are doing now and for future generations.
