At the same time, I was involved in advocacy efforts centered on enhancing labor safety. To that end, I had participated in an event in Washington, DC, meeting with congressional staff to directly champion our cause. Read more.

Join your colleagues and become a member of the Chapter that serves as a critical grassroots organization of the national College. It is also the backbone of the College’s “farm system” for recruiting talented young surgeons to engage in local and national activities. The Chapter provides an important link to our rich local surgical heritage and a mechanism by which young surgeons can maintain close contacts with colleagues throughout the State.
