August 2019 President's Letter: You Are the Future of AACS
Saturday, August 31, 2019
Dear friends and colleagues,
AACS is focused on the future. The education, professional development, and advocacy we bring to our members is key as we work to advance cosmetic surgery. Additionally, the expertise and professionalism of our members is vitally important to our mission. You, the members, are the future of our organization, and your membership helps us continue to build an organization that is dedicated to upholding the highest standards in patient care. As we head into our new membership beginning October 1, take a few moments to ensure that your AACS membership is up to date by logging into the AACS website.
Our educational offerings demonstrate AACS's commitment to connecting top cosmetic professionals to you, while presenting the latest techniques and state-of-the-art technology. Coming soon is the World Congress on Liposuction, September 6-7 in Chicago, with a two-day program featuring focused sessions, expert panels, and more. If you haven't registered yet, there's still time to sign up for this amazing conference. I'd love to see you there.
The AACS continues to train the next generation of cosmetic surgeons. Our certified Fellowship programs are the leading option for anyone who wants to begin a career in cosmetic surgery. These fellowship programs offer cutting edge, hands-on training with leading cosmetic surgeons around the country. I completed my AACS certified fellowship in 2009 and cannot recommend it highly enough. It was life changing. If you know a colleague who may be interested in these programs, please share the Fellowship information with them, as we still have openings for programs beginning in July 2020.
I'm looking forward to sharing a fantastic year with you as members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
Chris Lowery, DO, FACOS, FAACS
