History buffs attending the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress 2016, October 16−20, in Washington, DC, should plan to participate in several events sponsored by the College’s Surgical History Group (SHG). Stop by the Archives booth in the ACS Resource Center of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, and pick up this year’s premium, a packet of baseball-sized cards commemorating the first four ACS Presidents. Start collecting the first cards in this annual series.

Weigelt, MD, FACS, Milt & Lidy Lunda/Charles Aprahamian Professor of Trauma Surgery; professor and chief, division of trauma and critical care; and associate dean for quality, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and the 2015 recipient of the ACS Distinguished Service Award, will present a history of the Surgical Education and Self-Assessment Program at the Surgical History Group breakfast session, 7:00-8:00 am, Tuesday, October 18 in Room 204BC of the convention center. Attendees should plan to visit the more than 20 History of Surgery Posters, and attend the Panel Session, Three Pioneering African American Surgeons.
