Women and Infants Physician Appointed President of Professional Society

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

 

The American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) has appointed Deborah L. Meyers, MD, as president. Dr. Myers, of North Kingstown, is the director of both the Division of Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery and the program in Women’s Physical Therapy at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island as well as the associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

“This is a critical time to lead AUGS in its next steps – educating and mentoring our future leaders.  This is an important goal of mine.  AUGS needs to ensure the continued growth and success of the organization and, in turn, the future care for women with pelvic floor disorders.  I will work diligently to meet the challenges ahead,” said Dr. Myers.

AUGS

The American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS), founded in 1979, is the premier society dedicated to research and education in urogynecology, and the detection, prevention and treatment of female lower urinary tract disorders and pelvic floor disorders.

Dr. Meyers is also respected on a national and international level for her expertise in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery.  She is a recognized and active member of the health community currently serving as an editorial reviewer for eight professional journals including The New England Journal of Medicine and The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, co-authoring over 47 original publications, and writing 11 other peer-reviewed publications. She graduated from Allegheny College in Pennsylvania, earned her medical degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and completed her surgical internship at Rhode Island Hospital.

Myers herself -- with so many connections to medical societies, universities, hospitals, and medical journals – exemplifies the integrated approach to education, medicine, and research that she intends to improve during her presidency.  “I am confident that we will continue to promote the highest quality care in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery through excellence in education, research and advocacy,” she said.
