PGSG 2020 Fall Symposium - "Partnerships for Global Pediatric Surgery" 

The Penn Global Surgery Group hosted our 6th annual Penn Global Surgery Symposium virtually on Saturday, 10/3/20 (10am-1pm EST).

The theme was “Partnerships for Global Pediatric Surgery." Despite the virtual setting, we were able to bring together speakers from around the world.  We were extremely fortunate to have Dr. Doruk Ozgediz (pediatric surgeon at UCSF) as our keynote speaker, as well as his partners in global surgery in Uganda, Dr. Phyllis Kisa (pediatric and urologic surgeon) and Dr. Mary Nabukenya (anesthesiologist).  Finally, we heard from Dr. Georges Azzie (pediatric surgeon in Toronto and adjunct faculty at Penn). We're grateful and honored to all of these speakers for sharing their expertise with us. 

Stay tuned for our next symposium in the Spring 2021!
