This month’s most important SOGH news relates to our Strategic Planning meeting held in late January.  During a very focused two-day session involving our Board members and Executive Director, a strategic framework was created for how to serve our constituents in the most relevant ways possible.

Best Regards,


Meredith V. Morgan, M.D.
President, SOGH
