Annual Meeting kicks off with preconference coding course

Preconference Special Interest Sessions for the SGO Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer in New Orleans will begin on Friday, March 23, starting with Special Interest Session I: Coding and Practice Management. Led by Course Directors Eileen Segreti, MD; Kevin Holcomb, MD; David Holtz, MD; and Mary Cunningham, MD; this course explores the regulatory changes around value-based reimbursement and quality reporting that can lead to incentives—or penalties—for the care SGO members provide. The cost for this session is $200 for SGO members and $250 for nonmembers.

FWC Race Surgeons Team now SGO & Friends
