My goal for this coming year is to further expand our commitment to inclusivity. Our patient population is increasingly diverse. In order to provide the best possible care, it is imperative that our surgeons understand and represent those differences. Our education and leadership should reflect and engage members from a variety of backgrounds. We should also be more inclusive of our valued industry partners, as well as enhancing our collaborations with them, which will further strengthen our academy and specialty overall.”
