TBT: 75 Years Ago Women's Health Gets A Champion

ACOG is formally 75 years old this year. In 1951 three of the top OBGyns of their generation: Drs Beacham, Reis, and Schmitz formed the American Academy of Obstetrics and Gynecology, here in my home state of Illinois. By 1955 they changed their name to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and they are now known as the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
Eventually they left the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago for a view of Capital Hill where they are located now. ACOG is a group with many purposes. It's role as educator to its members long has expanded into certifications, practice guidelines, and advocacy for women in many ways. If you would like to sign the pledge from International Women's Day this can be found at the ACOG site.
Set the ACOG page in your favorites and you can follow important women's health announcements, programs and news, for instance continual updates on Zika Virus. We got this champion of women's health, 75 years ago, but their work has just begun and will take women's health advocacy into the future!
