Scientific Sessions (Annual Meeting)

2020 ANNUAL MEETING HIGHLIGHTS: The Sixteenth Annual Scientific Session of the Surgical Outcomes Club was none like we’ve ever experienced before. With the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Board of Directors decided to pivot to a virtual format. As we continue to adapt to these unprecedented times, we are continuing to learn about the COVID-19 challenges and opportunities. 

On Sunday, October 4th we heard from our John R Clarke keynote speaker Larry Hedges, PhD followed by a panel focused on surgical COVID-19 related projects. Panelists included Dr. Oluwadamilola “Lola” Fayanju (Duke University), Dr. Chad Ellimoottil (University of Michigan), Dr. Aneel Bhangu and Joana Simoes (University of Birmingham).

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT a recording is available for members. Please e-mail our administrator, Ashley Duby at for a copy.

SPECIAL THANK YOU to the panelists, Board of Directors and Ashley Duby for efforts toward an outstanding and successful annual meeting! We'd also like to thank Dr. Elizabeth Gleeson from Mount Sinai Hospital for creating for the visual abstracts.
