Educational Needs

The 2017 AACU State Society Network Advocacy Conference has been significantly expanded with the intent of fulfilling unmet educational needs. It will include presentations on urologic malignancies which will include prostate, bladder and renal cancer topics. It will also include presentations on male health issues such as sexual function and testosterone treatment.

In addition to these scientific topics, the meeting program will address physician burnout, recertification, coding and health care legislation. We have attracted a national faculty and anticipate a very successful and informative meeting.
