COVID-19 Important Payment Information
Due to the ever evolving COVID-19 health crisis and the physical closure of the association offices, we are unable to accept payments by postal service at this time. Your association team is working virtually, and keeping society operations moving forward. We encourage and thank our members to continue their support of the Society by making their payments online.


Fellow Surgeons,

On behalf of the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons, I would like to pass on some up-to date research on COVID 19 that you may find interesting.

There is an additional article that you should also review.

This crisis is particularly difficult for many of us, as we feel that it is outside our area of expertise. We hope to provide additional information that you may find useful as this emergency unfolds.

Stay safe, take care of yourself and each other, and we look forward to debriefing with you all when this is over.

Dmitry Nepomnayshy, MD, FACS
President
Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons

CANCELLATION NOTICE: ACS made the decision to cancel the upcoming Leadership & Advocacy Summit and its related committee meetings. Given the cancelation, the Joint Board of Governors/Chapter Leadership Program, which was to be held on March 28, is also cancelled. We are currently exploring ways to repurpose the content that was to be presented and will be in touch later this Spring with more details.

Secretary's Message
Peter S. Hopewood, MD, FACS, Secretary I am delighted to represent the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS), a scientific and educational association of surgeons that was established to improve the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting high standards for surgical education and practice. The MCACS addresses this mission through education, advocacy, professional consensus and fellowship. The Chapter is comprised of greater than 1000 ACS surgeons from the Commonwealth and is governed by a Council, led by President Dr. Richard S. Swanson of Cambridge Health Alliance.
