SASGOG Committees

Each SASGOG Committee has a different responsibility all aimed at helping the Society pursue its mission to enhance women’s health by supporting academic generalist physicians in all phases of their careers and to support education and scholarship, while fostering excellence in research.

Committee Members typically serve for 3 years. In the first quarter of the calendar year, SASGOG members at all career levels are solicited to volunteer for their preferred committee.
