Dear Colleague,

We hope you are having a wonderful summer. Ours here at the Secretariat has been busy. 

We are delighted to announce that our new, sleeker website is up and running at Please take a look at it, use it, and give us your thoughts on how we can make it better. 

Abstract proposals for our next annual conference will begin to be accepted in August. Stay tuned to the website for further information. 

We have now locked down our annual conferences for the next three years. They will be NYC in 2018, Chicago in 2019, and Washington, DC in 2020. 

Lastly, we run a very lean operation at CUGH. While our membership has nearly tripled in size over the last three years, we maintain the same number of staff. We are continually trying to strengthen and expand the activities and programs we offer for our members and to impact the global health challenges before us. If you would like to support our activities, please contribute to our mid-year fundraising drive at

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Best wishes,
Keith Martin MD
