About

Dear Members,

I am honored to be your current President of the Louisiana Chapter of the American College of Surgeons. Hats off to Dr. Juan Duchesne, Dr. Emad Kandil, the Councilors and Program Committee Members for an outstanding program. The speakers were outstanding and informative and the meeting was well attended. The presentations were excellent and well balanced.
As your President, I plan to review our by-laws to ensure that they are up to date with what we are currently doing. I also have several initiatives that I would like to propose that I believe will further enhance and add value to our organization. I will reach out to many of you to ask for your assistance in achieving these initiatives and I hope that you will be agreeable to help.

The Future. Through the Eyes of a Surgeon

As health care changes, it is critical that surgeons continue to have a strong voice and seat at the table in all patient care decisions. A new video encouraging Fellows to become actively involved in helping the ACS take bold steps and speak with a unified voice on behalf of patients was released during Clinical Congress. The ACS encourages Fellows to share the video with colleagues and at your chapter meetings.

The campaign has been developed so that we may strengthen our collective voice, and to reach health care leaders, policymakers, and the public. The ACS encourages Fellows to share the video with colleagues and at your chapter meetings.

The mission of the Louisiana Chapter of the American College of Surgeons is to:

promote and disseminate knowledge of current surgical principles, advocate for patients and colleagues, provide camaraderie, and support the mission of the American College of Surgeons.
