Spencer receives SGO Congressional Ambassador Award

Congratulations to Ryan Spencer, MD, MS, associate professor in the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Gynecologic Oncology, who received the Society of Gynecologic Oncology Congressional Ambassador Award! Spencer received the award during the 2023 SGO Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer in March 2023.

The Congressional Ambassador Award recognizes SGO members who have worked hard to educate our elected and appointed officials in Washington, DC, to promote health care policy changes and annual federal funding increases to positively impact the field of gynecologic oncology and the women who are impacted with gynecologic cancer malignancies.

Spencer has been an active participant in SGO congressional advocacy efforts for several years. In 2023, he also attended the ACOG Congressional Leadership Conference and visited Wisconsin legislators to discuss health care access and other key issues affecting reproductive health in Wisconsin.

Congratulations, Dr. Spencer, on this well-deserved honor!
