    Juneteenth 2021

    Jun 19, 2021 04:06 PM

    I think that many of us exhibited both surprise and a sense of relief to the news of the declaration of Juneteenth as a new federal holiday.

    New Location and Dates for PFD Week 2021

    Apr 27, 2021 03:47 PM

    I hope that you are all as excited as I am to finally have a firm plan for PFD Week 2021! Although we could not make Montreal work this year, the alternative location at the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa just outside of Phoenix is going to be a great venue to see each other again. AUGS will be the only meeting at the resort and our attendees will take over 95% of the guest rooms. This allows us to practice appropriate social distancing and to utilize all the meeting space – inside and outside.

    Apr 01, 2021 10:46 AM

    I think that we have all been ready for the coming of spring with an extra hour of sunlight in most parts, the budding of flowers and trees, and making plans for spring break.

I hope that you are all keeping safe in this regard.

    After my President’s Perspective on racial equity and diversity, AUGS received numerous letters expressing thoughts on our sub-specialty history, member concerns, and the health care disparities related both to our patients and research within our field. I was able to listen and talk with many members and this was a powerful experience for me personally and confirmed the need for all of us to make sure that AUGS is a welcoming society for all our members.
