Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The worldwide effort to contain the COVID-19 pandemic has expanded to full containment efforts affecting virtually all of our future educational programs. The current predictions are variable making it impossible to plan. We respect that most of our colleagues are busy attending to their practices and will likely be doing so for the near future.
Because of the current crisis, I am sad to announce that WAOCS’ Seattle Liposuction Live Surgery Workshop must be postponed until we can find a feasible date to resume our hands-on experiences in a safe and effective environment. But as with all pandemics in the past, the crisis will pass and we will begin to live our normal lives again.
My passion for education during my World Academy presidency has taken me around the globe to teach new skills to all interested surgeons. I promise we will continue to offer these opportunities as soon as this crisis abates. Stay in touch with us at WAOCS.org and stay safe and in touch with our community. We wish you good health.
Wishing you health, unity and safety,
E. Antonio Mangubat, MD
