NC ACS Rural/Community Surgeons’ Spring Dinner 


Are you a rural/community surgeon?
Do you have a passion for rural surgery?
Do want to support and collaborate with rural surgeons?

If so, you are cordially invited to the Rural and Community Surgeons’ dinner. We hope to have education, lively discussion, fellowship, and future planning mixed into one evening.

Attendings and residents will be invited initially, and this event will open up to medical students at a later date.

We are excited to learn about changes in the management of desmoid tumors, one of those zebras we inevitably come across in rural/community practice.

We will also be discussing future projects and plans.

Please RSVP using the QR code on the attachment. Please RSVP by June 17. If spots are available, we will open up to medical students at that time.
