Mission

The Foundation of the AAGL provides opportunities for education, mentorship, global outreach, and patient advocacy, 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 education, mentorship, global outreach, patient advocacy, 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 Global Congress, opportunities for mentorships in MIGS, and patient advocacy and education to empower progress in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and improve women’s healthcare.

Welcoming Visionary Leadership!

We are thrilled to introduce the newest additions to the Foundation of the AAGL’s Board of Directors. With their passion for excellence and strategic insights, we are poised to make significant strides in women’s health. Let’s celebrate the strength and innovation they bring to our Foundation! Congratulations!

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.

PATIENT ADVOCACY

We support patient advocacy groups and provide patient education and awareness of MIGS.
