It is with excitement and enthusiasm that I announce the Plastic Surgery Research Council 2017 Annual Meeting will be held in Durham! The meeting will take place at the Washington Duke Inn Thursday, May 4, 2017 through Saturday, May 6, 2017. It will be followed by a Plastic Surgery Foundation Fundamentals in Plastic Surgery Workshop starting the afternoon of May 6th, ending by noon on Sunday May 7th.
The local program will be held on May 4th at Fuqua Business School. I am looking forward to showcasing Durham, all that we are doing at Duke, and hosting some high profile speakers for the morning. Programming the afternoon of May 4th, May 5th and 6th will focus on research being conducted in plastic surgery and an opportunity for presenters and attendees to engage in dialogue, ask questions, and debate, all in the name of science. All will take place at the lovely Washington Duke.
We also have a great social program lined up. A welcome reception will be held on the beautiful President’s Terrace at the Washington Duke on May 4th. The poster reception the afternoon of May 5th will be the perfect opportunity to mingle and indulge in libations while discussing research being presented. Following the poster reception will be the Members Dinner at one of downtown Durham's finest. To wrap up the meeting, we will have a pickup basketball game the afternoon of May 6th at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Please mark your calendars and note the abstract submission will open in August.
See you in Durham!
