  • 5. facebook.com/acognational 61st Annual Clinical Meeting MAY 4 - 8, 2013 • ERNEST N. MORIAL CONVENTION CENTER When 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 myself and my strengths and weaknesses; to help me relate better with the people in my life; and to help develop my leadership skills. I wanted the ACMs to provide the opportunities for me to be both a better physician and a better person. 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 to see the devastation of hurricanes firsthand and help rebuild the community. This ACM is an exceptional opportunity for you and your families to experience an outstanding educational and social program in historic New Orleans. The interactive scientific program begins with weekend postgraduate courses. The President’s Program speakers on Monday morning will challenge 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 preceding the 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 the beignets 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 President PRESIDENT’S INVITATION 3
  • 6. ERNEST N. MORIAL CONVENTION CENTER • MAY 4 - 8, 2013 61st Annual Clinical Meeting twitter.com/acognews ■ #ACM13 On behalf of the Committee on Scientific Program, we would like to invite you to New Orleans for the 61st Annual Clinical Meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The meeting will be held May 4-8, 2013, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center; the headquarters hotel is the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel. This meeting will provide an outstanding opportunity for education, renewing old friendships, developing new ones, and exploring the “Big Easy.” The Committee on Scientific Program has diligently designed a program to address the clinical and research challenges of all aspects of obstetric and gynecologic medicine. We encourage you to read through the program to see the breadth of issues to be addressed. The President’s Program will focus on the themes of Dr. James Breeden’s presidency, which are patient safety, women’s health care advocacy, communication and technology, and 21st century practice and leadership. State-of-the-art “Symposia” will address diverse areas of interest such as environmental toxins that impact reproduction, noninvasive prenatal testing, maternal mortality reduction, cervical cancer diagnosis guidelines, endometrial cancer staging, global health, and history of the NICHD. The meeting will also include the popular roundtable luncheons, brown bag seminars, interactive videos, and clinical sessions, as well as a wide selection of postgraduate courses. In direct response to feedback received from participants attending prior meetings, several modifications and improvements have been made for the 2013 meeting. Increased space allocation has been provided for the interactive clinical seminars. There is a continued focus and expansion of courses designed to address practice management and electronic health records, including a new hands-on course addressing “medical apps” for smart phones. Interactive surgical tutorials will also be provided regarding minimally invasive hysterectomy, and techniques of abdominal wound closure and highlighting anatomic surgical “pearls.” With the increased number of interactive course offerings included in the general registration, please be sure to register for these courses so we can anticipate room allocation as well as provide you with the appropriate continuing medical education credit. There are several featured extracurricular activities. All are invited to attend the Welcome Reception on Sunday evening May 5 (on the Exhibit Hall floor), as well as the President’s Party on Tuesday, May 7 (at Mardi Gras World), which is certain to be an incredible event. New Orleans is a city rich in history with traditions and customs woven into the fabric of everyday life. Renowned for its exquisite cuisine, it is no wonder that New Orleans is often selected as one of the five best restaurant cities in the U.S. This meeting offers something for all attendees, including comprehensive programming, cutting-edge education, and an array of options to keep families and guests entertained. Register today! We hope you will enjoy the wonderful program the committee has put together. We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans! Laurie J. McKenzie, MD John Yeh, MD Co-Chair, Committee on Scientific Program Co-Chair, Committee on Scientific Program INVITATION FROM THE COMMITTEE ON SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM CO-CHAIRS 4

This stately vessel is part of an old tradition of romance, luxury, and comfort. Authentically patterned wrought iron trims the outer decks, inviting guests to stroll back in time, as they settle into the mood of a bygone era.

Each one of these movies was filmed on location right here in the Big Easy. New Orleans is fast becoming the new Hollywood of the South. Many cities offer movie tours centered on a famous movie or two, but nowhere else can one tour through the city streets and see where over dozens of movies have been filmed. Unlike studio back lots, movies in New Orleans are filmed right in the center of the action. From the historic French Quarter to the beautiful Garden District and sometimes all the way out to the suburbs, a knowledgeable guide will take you through the streets of New Orleans to the locations of many popular movies. See the famous marble courthouse where “Runaway Jury” and “J.F.K.” were both shot. View the cemetery that Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda made famous in “Easy Rider.” Check out Tulane University, where Julia Roberts filmed “The Pelican Brief.” Observe the Crescent City Connection that took Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum to the other side of the mighty Mississippi River in “21 Jump Street.” Stand in front of the “Benjamin Button” house. Many Hollywood stars have chosen to take up residence in New Orleans as well. See the Garden District homes of Sandra Bullock and John Goodman and learn the “secret” location of Brad and Angelina’s French Quarter residence. Your guide will inform you of property values of the neighborhoods that are home to many of the celebrities on this unique sightseeing tour combining “real life” history with “reel live” locations.

You are about to enter Louisiana’s scenic bayous and swamps, the land that gave birth to Cajun culture and cuisine. Experience the beauty and serenity on a flatboat ride into the interior of one of the wildest swamps and natural areas in North America. Flourishing with cypress trees draped in Spanish moss, wild flowers, and multitudes of indigenous aquatic plants, the swamp opens a path to the heart of Louisiana. Your captain, a native of the region, will provide an interesting and entertaining narrative of the history of the massive swampland as you may encounter alligators, egrets, raccoons, water snakes, and many varieties of birds as well as exotic plant life. You will even get a peek at an authentic Cajun “trapper’s shack” nestled in this beautiful swampland. PERSPECTIVES ON ANTEBELLUM LIFE: LAURA & OAK ALLEY PLANTATIONS Date: Sunday, May 5 (10:00 AM - 3:00 PM) Cost: $98 per person Activity Level: Moderate Specifications: Deluxe motor coach roundtrip transportation; admission and tour of Laura Plantation and Oak Alley Plantation with lunch; includes taxes, gratuities, and insurance Take a journey to plantation country and experience two different perspectives of life in the Old South. Visit Laura Plantation, a true example of life on a creole plantation, and Oak Alley, which epitomizes the elegance of the American-style plantation home. While most antebellum homes evoke images of hoop skirts and white columns, Laura Plantation, built in 1805, presents a different view of Creole life. Your expert guide will provide an insider’s perspective into a Creole household. Hear stories detailing daily life and major events of the inhabitants, both free and slave, including the discovery of the first written records of the American fable, Br’er Rabbit. Continue up River Road for a tour of Oak Alley Plantation, built in 1837. The Southern days of old are captured at one of Louisiana’s most photographed Southern mansions, which have been brought back to life in numerous Hollywood movies. Famed for its alley of live oak trees, the quarter-mile avenue was already an impressive 100 years old when Oak Alley was built. Oak Alley is one of the finest examples of adaptive restoration on the Mississippi River. Lunch will be served at Oak Alley. 77
  • 80. ERNEST N. MORIAL CONVENTION CENTER • MAY 4 - 8, 2013 61st Annual Clinical Meeting twitter.com/acognews ■ #ACM13 You will be treated like royalty at M.S. Rau, Royal Street’s most elite antique and art gallery. View works by Monet, Rodin, and O’Keeffe to name a few. Enjoy learning the histories and stories behind the collections and anecdotes of the gallery’s famous clientele, including former presidents and celebrities. While enjoying the tour, you will also be treated to the world renowned New Orleans cocktail, the Sazerac. It all began for the Sazerac cocktail in the early 1800s when Antoine Amedee Peychaud mixed Cognac with his Peychaud bitters. In 1859 the drink was the signature drink of the Sazerac Coffee House in New Orleans, where it received its name. The Sazerac consists of unique blends of rye whiskey, simple syrup, Peychaud bitters, herbsaint (or absinthe), and a lemon twist to garnish the outside of the glass. THAT DEEP SOUTH CUISINE Date: Tuesday, May 7 (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM) Cost: $70 per person Activity Level: Light Specifications: Deluxe motor coach roundtrip transportation; cooking demonstration and lunch; includes taxes, gratuities, and insurance How can we sum up New Orleans cuisine in one dish? Creole gumbo? Andouille jambalaya? Soft-shelled crabs? Barbecued shrimp? Black-eyed peas? Crawfish? Beignets? Pralines? What’s the difference between Cajun cooking and Creole cooking? And what is a roux? The only way to learn to recreate the magic that is New Orleans cuisine in your own kitchen is to watch a professional chef perform. Our expert chef will whet your appetite for Creole cooking–the world-famous cuisine that combines the finest elements of French and Spanish cooking with rich seafood, spices, and produce. Different New Orleans specialties will be demonstrated, and you’ll get to sample some of these delicacies after the lesson. This is one class you don’t want to skip! GRACE AND GRANDEUR: HOUMAS HOUSE PLANTATION Date: Tuesday, May 7 (1:00 PM - 5:00 PM) Cost: $55 per person Activity Level: Moderate Specifications: Delux motor coach roundtrip transportation; admission and tour of Houmas House; includes taxes/gratuities Experience a bygone era and savor the aristocratic splendor of the Old South. Today, you will travel to Houmas House Plantation, nicknamed “The Sugar Palace,” for its beautiful appearance and reference to its massive sugar production during the early 1800s. Recently, this grand mansion was purchased and lovingly restored by a new owner. Refurbished with period antiques, fixtures, and furnishings from the 1800s, the home now stands as a glorified example of a grand plantation of the South. SPOUSE/GUEST TOURS Upon arrival, you will be greeted by docents, attired in antebellum dress. Stories of the way life was during the 1800s will pique your interest as you explore 16 exquisite rooms filled with Louisiana artwork and artifacts dating back to the original plantation. Then, take in the beautiful gardens, filled with flowing fountains and water lilies. The live oaks on the grounds are ranked among some of the oldest and most striking in the world. SACRED & MYSTERIOUS: CHURCHES & CEMETERIES Date: Wednesday, May 8 (9:00 AM - 1:00 PM) Cost: $50 per person Activity Level: Extensive Specifications: Deluxe motor coach roundtrip transportation; admission to St. Louis I cemetery, Ursuline Convent, and Our Lady of Guadalupe; includes taxes, gratuities, and insurance Religion is an integral part of the culture and history of New Orleans. On this tour, you will delve into the religious culture and spirit of Louisiana by visiting its most famous churches and cemeteries. It is here that you will admire great architecture, exquisite wood, stained glass and stone, and learn about the “Cities of the Dead.” Explore the city’s most unique cemetery, St. Louis I. Unlike other cities, all tombs are above-ground here and were frequently designed by famous architects. You’ll visit the tombs of both the famous and infamous like Paul Morphy, the world chess champion, and Marie Laveau, the Voodoo Queen. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the oldest church still standing in the city. The building was erected in 1826 and was originally used as burial grounds for the fallen victims of yellow fever. Now, this is the official chapel of the New Orleans Police and Fire departments. Next, visit the old Ursuline Convent in the French Quarter. The Ursuline Convent is the oldest standing building in the lower Mississippi Valley and the only remaining example of pure French Creole architecture in the city, having survived the 1788 fire. A tour of this incredible Convent will be most memorable as the grounds and church are filled with interesting historical facts and an ambiance that echoes southern antiquity and lore.

MORIAL CONVENTION CENTER GARDEN DISTRICT TOUR WITH ELMS MANSION Date: Wednesday, May 8 (11:00 AM - 2:00 PM) Cost: $75 per person Activity Level: Extensive Specifications: Deluxe motor coach roundtrip transportation; admission and tour of Elms Mansion with lunch; includes taxes/gratuities Learn about the fascinating history and splendor of the Garden District of New Orleans with a narrated walking tour of this famed neighborhood and tour of a private home. Travel down the renowned St. Charles Avenue, leading the way to the Garden District. During the 19th century, this area was known as the “American Sector,” where English, rather than French, was the primary language. A professional guide will escort you through the residential street and recall stories of how the wealthy American planters, snubbed by Creole society, spared no expense to build palatial mansions and gardens. Next, visit the Elms Mansion, one of the most renowned homes on St. Charles Avenue. Beautifully appointed, the interior captures a flavor reminiscent of a bygone era, featuring original wall coverings, hard- carved mantels, a grand ballroom lined with jeweled windows, and impeccable period furnishings.
