AAGL has been a crucial part of my life for over a decade. The organization and educational events at the Annual Congresses have allowed me to expand my medical knowledge and surgical skills as well as provide me with several opportunities to educate and mentor others with similar interests. The long-term relationships formed and the knowledge gained are what keep bringing me back to the meeting every year.
