UW Ob-Gyn presents at ACOG District VI meeting

Many people from across the UW Department of Ob-Gyn were active participants in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists District VI annual meeting in Chicago September 16-18, 2022! Just a few of their amazing contributions:

Ryan McDonald, MD, associate professor in the Division of Academic Specialists in Ob-Gyn, served as the District VI CME Representative on the annual meeting planning committee.

Heidi Brown, MD, MAS, associate professor in the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, presented “Talking About and Treating Bowel Incontinence.”

UW Ob-Gyn Gynecologic Oncology Fellow Matt Wagar, MD presented “Access to Risk Reducing Gynecology Surgery.”

Cholene Espinoza, MD, assistant professor in the Division of Academic Specialists in Ob-Gyn, presented “Recognition and Resuscitation of Critically Ill Obstetric Patients.”

Resident Margaret Harrison, MD, PGY-3, presented as an ACOG Junior Fellow.

One former resident, Ashley Turner, presented Updates in Family Planning, and another, Kristin Lyerly, joined a panel called Grassroots in Advocacy (and serves as the District VI Treasurer). 

Congratulations to all, incredible work!
