As we embark on a new year for the Foundation of the AAGL, it is my privilege to support the organization that has become the premier association for gynecologic surgery worldwide. I am inspired to continue the dedication and hard work toward fulfilling our mission. The Foundation exists to provide the resources for scholarships, teaching opportunities, academic research, global outreach, and mentorship―with the ultimate goal of elevating minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and improving women’s health.

While we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the AAGL, we are reminded to give back to an organization that has supported our careers, fostered our continued learning, and kept us at the frontier of surgery and medicine.

The Foundation will continue forward with strong purpose and commitment. Thank you to the entire Foundation Board for their perseverance, leadership, engagement, and dedication.

The work of the Foundation is made possible through the tremendous generosity of each of you, our AAGL members and donors. Your contributions create opportunities and improve lives.

This is your AAGL, your Foundation, and your Future. You Make the Difference.
