The California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery 19th Annual Meeting and Symposium in November 2017 was very successful. The course brought 26 distinguished national and international speakers and more than 120 participants. The speakers came from St. Louis, Oklahoma, Florida, Nevada, Texas, Arizona and of course California.

Practice management topics covered marketing, Accreditation, lawsuit protection and prevention and managing competition.

The participants included many experienced cosmetic surgeons, resulting in a high level of interchange of knowledge and collegiality. We had our lobbyist John Valencia talk about the importance of advocacy for our specialty.

Thank you to the rest of our Faculty:
