Welcome!

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

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

This year’s theme is “Partnerships for Global Pediatric Surgery,” and we will be harnessing our virtual setting to bring together speakers from around the world.  We are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Doruk Ozgediz, a pediatric surgeon at UCSF, as our keynote speaker.  He will be joined by two of his partners in global surgery in Uganda, Dr. Phyllis Kisa (pediatric and urologic surgeon) and Dr. Mary Nabukenya (anesthesiologist).  Finally, we are very lucky to have Dr. Georges Azzie (pediatric surgeon in Toronto and adjunct faculty at Penn) return as a guest speaker.  We are grateful and honored to all of these speakers for offering to share their expertise with us.

The event will be hosted on BlueJeans. A free RSVP is required. You can register at: http://pgsg2020.eventbrite.com
