  • facebook.com/acognational61st Annual Clinical MeetingMAY 4 - 8, 2013 • ERNEST N. MORIAL CONVENTION CENTERWhen I first started attending ACOG ACMs, I expected to be informed of the latest medical research, techniques,and practice guidelines. But as my life changed, I wanted more. I wanted the ACM to help me understand myselfand my strengths and weaknesses; to help me relate better with the people in my life; and to help develop myleadership skills. I wanted the ACMs to provide the opportunities for me to be both a better physician and a betterperson. Thus, we have planned this ACM to be a meeting that helps each of you in many areas of your life: with top-tier medical lectures, interpersonal skills workshops, opportunities for family bonding, and even the possibility tosee the devastation of hurricanes firsthand and help rebuild the community. This ACM is an exceptionalopportunity for you and your families to experience an outstanding educational and social program in historic NewOrleans.The interactive scientific program begins with weekend postgraduate courses. The President’s Program speakers on Monday morning willchallenge and inspire both physicians and guests.• Dr. Malcolm Potts is the director of The Bixby Center for Population, Health, and Sustainability; author of 10 books, including The Evolution of Human Sexuality and Sex and War (which concludes that increasing women’s autonomy, especially with regard to reproduction, would lead to more peaceful societies).• Dr. Gary Chapman is a New York Times bestselling author whose books include The Five Love Languages, which has sold more than 6 million copies, and The Five Languages of Apology. Dr. Chapman will discuss the importance and techniques of apology in maintaining relationships and decreasing medical liability.• Dr. Sandra Ann Carson and Dr. Barbara S. Levy, vice presidents for the College, will speak about women in leadership. The program will also focus on the work/life balance, family and professional relationship-building, and leadership skills.Plan to arrive early so you can volunteer with colleagues and help rebuild a family’s home with the St. Bernard Project on Friday precedingthe Annual Clinical Meeting. Other events at this year’s Annual Clinical Meeting include:• The Welcome Reception on Sunday evening held in the Exhibit Hall.• Dr. Chapman will present a special lecture on the Five Love Languages on Monday afternoon.• Tuesday morning is the postgraduate course: Myers Briggs personality evaluation to improve relationships, leadership, and lifestyle balance (attend with your spouse and your young adult children).• Tuesday evening is the President’s Party. It will be a delightful evening full of fun for the whole family at Mardi Gras World.• WednesdaymorningistheConvocationwiththeinductionofnewFellows,andtheinaugurationofDr.JeanneConryandthe delivery of her presidential address.New Orleans is a unique and picturesque city. Stroll through the French Quarter, the Garden District, and along the Mississippi river walk. Enjoy astounding music venues including the last weekend of Jazz Fest (www.nojazzfest.com). Delight in the “best food in the US,” from thebeignets to the many world-class restaurants.Please note that ACOG provides excellent child-care facilities at minimal cost during all meetings and social events.The 61st Annual Clinical Meeting has an exceptional scientific program and an engaging guest program. I hope to see you there.James T. Breeden, MD, FACOG PresidentPRESIDENT’S INVITATION3
