As the current and outgoing President of the very prestigious Association for Academic Surgery, Dr. Lillian Kao has been invited to give the keynote address at this year’s Academic Surgical Congress.  Lillian will be speaking on February 5, 2014 in San Diego on “Real World versus the Ivory Tower: The Challenge for Academic Surgery” and will also be hosting a separate Presidential Session on innovation in surgery.

We are extremely proud that Dr. Kao has been a member of our faculty for over a decade, and she continues to help us remain active in the leadership of surgery in the United States.
