UAB Endocrine Surgery Research Group Takes on Chicago

Our UAB Endocrine Surgery Research Group flew the coop to Chicago last week to attend the annual Society for Asian Academic Surgeons meeting. Nine abstracts were presented by our talented faculty and trainees. SAAS label bourbon, hand selected from Riff Distillery by our own Herbert Chen was enjoyed by all with bottle purchases benefitting the SAAS foundation.
We congratulate our presenters. Way to represent UAB!
