Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Enclosed you will find this years edition of the Fall Newsletter. The past year has been a busy and productive year for the Society, highlighted by the fantastic Annual meeting in Boston and the Spring Symposium on Rhinoplasty in New York City. Please read Dr. Peter Taub's President's Address for full details of the year. I hope you will attend the 2019 Annual Meeting later this month, in Pittsburgh. The agenda is packed full of innovative and exciting topics including panels on transgender surgery, ALCL and facelifts. As we are all aware its meeting colleagues we do not see frequently enough which makes the meetings special. Please come to catch up, re-live old and make new memories.
This year the Spring Meeting will be on "Special Topics in Plastic Surgery of the Breast". The NESPS is proud to host Dr. Elizabeth Hall Findlay as the visiting professor for what should be a very special day. Please support the program and encourage your faculty and residents to participate. The meeting is only one day long but packs in the essentials of both aesthetic and reconstruction of the breast, focusing on clinical pearls and interactive discussions among regional and national experts.
From the following Program Round-Up, you will see that the Northeastern programs are leading the nation, the level of research grants awarded and honors bestowed are second to none. I would like to thank the busy Chairpersons, Program Directors and Coordinators who took the time to complete the survey: I know it takes significant time to do this thoroughly. It is great to get this snapshot of what each program is doing so again, thank you!
I would like to again invite our members in private practice to submit updates to me via my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be included in next years Program Update in a Private Practice Update section.
I look forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh.
