MPACS-PAS Annual Joint Dinner Meeting

The Metro Philly Chapter and Philadelphia Academy of Surgeons joined together to host the annual Educational Dinner Meeting on Monday, September 13th at the Philadelphia Marriott Old City. It was the first in-person event since May 2019 for the surgical community and brought together colleagues from across the Philadelphia region to re-connect, meet with pharma and device representatives, and review the many abstract and case review posters. Dr. Amy Goldberg, Dean of Lewis Katz School of Medicine, was the keynote speaker and Dr. Iman Afif was the top abstract podium presenter.

MPACS thanks our sponsors who helped make the event a success through their generous financial support.


Why Join A Local ACS Chapter?

Why belong to your local chapter? Local chapters offer opportunities to network with colleagues in your backyard, attend seminars and other educational events close to home and monitor legislative and regulatory issues affecting Pennsylvania physicians. Chapter members looking for guidance or assistance with an issue can reach out to another member, close to home, that could be dealing with the same state-related issue.
