*Abstracts may focus on the education of medical students, residents, patients, obstetric care providers, or the community
*All health care providers (anesthesiologists, fellows, residents, obstetricians, nurses, etc.) are eligible as long as they are a member of SOAP or sponsored by a SOAP member
Dr. Nixon was also newly appointed to the Board of Directors as the Media Chair and Newsletter Editor, and elected to serve as host of the 51st Annual SOAP meeting to be held in Phoenix, Arizona in 2019.
