2021 District XI Annual District Meeting

Focusing on Women’s Health

Virtual Meeting | Oct 22-24, 2021

Overview

Due to the unpredictability of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s District XI Annual District Meeting, scheduled for October 22-24, 2021, will be virtual. The in-person meeting has been cancelled.

While we will miss the opportunity to gather together in person, the Scientific Program Committee and staff are working hard to take what has been learned from our many successful virtual programs over the last year to develop an excellent and engaging virtual program.

The virtual program will include several outstanding speakers who will engage attendees in interactive discussions on important topics, including minimally invasive gynecological procedures; placenta accreta spectrum epidemic; maternal sepsis; and many more. Special highlights include abstracts, a film festival, and a virtual exhibit hall.

Please be sure to mark your calendars for October 22–24, 2021, and stay tuned for more information on registration.
