American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Rural Surgeons Open Forum and Oweida Scholarship Presentation

Tuesday, October 29 | 4:15–5:45 pm

The session opens with the introduction of the three 2019 Nizar N. Oweida Scholarship recipients:

  • Christian Eusebio, MD, a general surgeon from Tamuning, GU
  • Courtney L. Olmsted, MD, MSCI, a general surgeon from Morrisville, VT
  • Wei Wei, MD, FACS, a general surgeon from Galax, VA

The Advisory Council for Rural Surgery (ACRS) sponsors this open forum to facilitate direct communication with rural surgeons and the ACRS. Following a brief description of the current projects of the ACRS, we will hold an open forum with all in attendance. This forum will focus on recruitment efforts, call relief strategies, and how to get the resources you need to provide optimal care to your patients. The ACRS encourages you to bring your concerns. The ACRS is committed to being your vehicle to make change, to be your voice to ACS leadership, and to make the ACS even more relevant to your practice. We are committed to helping you provide optimal surgical care to your patients in your community.
