Make plans now to attend ACOG annual meeting

New Orleans will be the site of 61st Annual Clinical Meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists May 4-8, 2013. The 2013 educational program will focus on practical clinical topics, with particular emphasis directed toward the advancement of healthcare services for women worldwide. Many state-of-the-art hands-on sessions, instructive didactic postgraduate courses, informative poster sessions, and engaging clinical seminars are planned.

Symposia will address such diverse areas of interest such as environmental toxins that impact reproduction, noninvasive prenatal testing, maternal mortality reduction, cervical cancer diagnosis guidelines, endometrial cancer staging, and global health. Several modifications and improvements have been made for the 2013 meeting: increased space allocation has been provided for the interactive clinical seminars; courses have designed to address practice management and electronic health records, including a new hands-on course addressing "medical apps" for smart phones; and interactive surgical tutorials will be provided regarding such topics as minimally invasive hysterectomy and techniques of abdominal wound closure.
