Participants will have access to various presentations by ACS colleagues on surgical best practices. They will also hear an address by the conference’s keynote speaker, Rolf Benirschke. Rolf is a former NFL player who suffered from ulcerative colitis. While in his third season in the NFL, his condition deteriorated.

Now retired from football, he is the CEO of Legacy Health Strategies and a recognized speaker in the healthcare industry.
