Who Makes a Difference in Your Life?
We often search for ways to pay tribute to colleagues, family, or friends who have made a meaningful impact on our careers and professional development. Tribute gifts, ones made in memory of or in honor of someone, are a thoughtful way to say thank you. The Foundation of the AAGL (FAAGL) has helped thousands of young surgeons learn from mentors and grow into mentors themselves. The FAAGL wants to help you celebrate and thank your mentor when you donate to the FAAGL in their honor. For each donation, we will send an acknowledgment letter to your honoree (or family, if in memoriam) on National Doctor’s Day (March 30th), feature a special recognition page on the FAAGL website, highlight mentors in an upcoming NewsScope and give recognition at the AAGL Global Congress in Aurora, CO December 1 – 4, 2022.
Your generous contribution will show your gratitude while simultaneously advancing the FAAGL’s mission for education, research, technology, and global outreach with the goal of improving women’s health. You may also give to honor a non-physician mentor—a professor, parent, colleague, or anyone who helped you become the person you are today. Click this link today to donate!
In addition to nominating your mentor, please consider submitting their name for the John F. Steege Award to be presented at AAGL’s Global Congress. Award applications and criteria will be announced soon. Together, and with all of you, our donors, and supporters, we will continue to make a difference by empowering progress in MIGS worldwide.
