News & Notes
Over 70 people attended a beautiful PAACS reception at the Omni Seaport Hotel during the Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons. Brief PAACS updates were given by host Dr. Adrian Park, PAACS Executive Vice President Keir Thelander, and PAACS Academic Dean John Tarpley. We trust the connections made will bring fruit for the future of global surgery and growing the Kingdom of God.
The PAACS Fall 2023 Conference was a remarkable event that
brought together participants from around the world on Friday,
October 13th, in Chicago. This hybrid meeting continues to be a
truly global gathering. Eighty-five individuals attended in person
and almost thirty guests attended virtually. It provided a unique
opportunity for attendees to gain valuable insights into the inner
workings of PAACS. We were honored to welcome both past and
present faculty members, including two accomplished PAACS
graduates, Dr. Jack Barasa and Dr. Gezahegne Tilahun.
PAACS sponsored its Professional Development Conference from October 1-7, 2023, at the Brackenhurst Conference Center in Limuru, Kenya.
