Invitation to Attend

It is with great excitement, that I invite you to attend the ACOG District XII 2016 Annual District Meeting (ADM) that will be held August 12-14, at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek in Orlando, FL. Under the guidance of a new scientific program chair, the 2016 program will have a variety of new, exciting and stimulating lectures led by nationally renowned faculty. These experts will present the latest research, discuss complex cases and provide you with practical recommendations that you will be able to take back and implement immediately in your practice. This program has been designed to meet the educational needs of the obstetrician, gynecologist, ob/gyn subspecialist, as well as the ob/gyn nurse practitioner.

In addition to the educational opportunities, there will be plenty of time for attendees to connect with colleagues and network in the exhibit hall as well as during the planned social functions. We are expecting over 70 companies to exhibit and showcase some of best services and products in the field of obstetrics and gynecology.

As always, we encourage attendees to make reservations as soon as possible! To make yours today, you can reserve online by CLICKING HERE or you can call 1-888-353-2013. Please be sure to ask for the ACOG room block (code: HACO) that starts at $159/night; plus taxes. The special group rate is available until Monday, July 11, 2016 or until the room block is filled.

We look forward to seeing you next August!
