Message From The President

February 2021

I continue to be inspired by our community, our members, the ASTS staff and all those who keep advancing the ASTS and its mission, despite challenging times. After a great start to the year with the Winter Symposium, the Society has continued full steam ahead in rolling out more meetings and events. The first-ever digital Surgical Fellows Symposium took place Thursday, February 11, and Friday, February 12. Highlights of the meeting included breakout room Q&A sessions, presentations given by ASTS members on a variety of transplantation topics, and Cocktails and Counterpoints sessions during which fellows debated relevant issues in transplantation.
