Duke 2019 AUA Recap

 

Duke Urology and the DCI Center for Prostate & Urologic Cancers recently presented at the 2019 American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois.

 

Now in its 114thyear, the AUA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of urologists in the world. The meeting provides physicians with unparalleled access to research, new guidelines and the latest advances in urologic medicine. Over the course of the symposium, attendees engage with educational and hands-on sessions, keynote lectures, oral abstract presentations and poster sessions highlighting the latest, breakthrough science in urologic diseases.

 

“I think everyone gets rejuvenated when they come to this meeting,” described Glenn Preminger, MD, Chief of Urology at Duke University. “Duke had a wonderful AUA representation this year from our urology, medical oncology and radiology colleagues. Together, we presented pioneering research from Duke. Our ultimate goal each year is to learn and share as much as possible, so that we can continue to provide the best outcomes for our patients. In the end, our resident Dr. Ashely Johnston won best poster in her session and two of our studies were featured in the endourology “Take Home Points” plenary.”
