Mission

The Foundation of the AAGL provides opportunities for education, mentorship, global outreach and awareness with the ultimate goal of improving women’s health.

Vision

We seek to provide the resources to support the Foundation of the AAGL’s mission to fund teaching, mentorship, global outreach, awareness, and other initiatives that improve the health of women worldwide. We do this by providing grants to support the AAGL’s FMIGS programs, periodic awards for outstanding MIGS achievements and scientific accomplishments at the AAGL Congress, opportunities for improving mentorships in MIGS, and financial support to raise awareness to improve quality care in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.

HOW WILL WE ACCOMPLISH THIS?

We can make a difference through:

MENTORSHIP

We provide mentorship awards, show gratitude to our “difference makers” through our annual Honor Your Mentor campaign, and support buddy programs that offer mentorship to physicians in training.

EDUCATION

We support education for residents, fellows, and lifelong learners and provide scientific achievement awards.

OUTREACH

We support training and assistance to underserved communities, medical mission trips and fostering international relationships. We provide scholarships that allow physicians from underserved communities to attend the AAGL Global Congress.

AWARENESS

We support patient advocacy groups, patient focused MIGS awareness, and create awareness of MIGS through fundraising.
