Dear Colleagues,
We invite you to San Antonio for the Society of Government Service Urologists’ 63rd annual Kimbrough Meeting, January 13-17, 2016 at the Westin Riverwalk Hotel. Tim Phillips and Steve Hudak are the program directors and have secured an excellent cast of invited guest speakers, many of whom are prior military, including Ian Thompson, Andrew Peterson, and Allen Morey. Topics that will be addressed include oncology, incontinence, OAB, pediatrics, trauma, reconstruction, stone disease, and endourology; as well as health care policy, coding and quality improvement. The Program Committee met during the recent AUA convention, and planning is well underway for a great seminar. navarro-ballroom-prefunctionThe meeting should be an excellent academic opportunity to share knowledge and earn CMEs, and as always, an outstanding social event for active military, retirees, and friends of the SGSU. Please make plans to join us in January. Further information will be distributed soon.
