City-wide QI in OB – Cancelled

As you know, on March 31st, the OB Society of Philadelphia was planning to host a meeting “Shared Quality Initiatives in OB Care in the City of Philadelphia”. At this meeting, we were planning to discuss several initiatives that the Obstetrical Chairs in the city of Philadelphia have been working on relating to improved safety and care of our patients.

Unfortunately, we are cancelling the meeting due to several conflicts. We are sorry for the late notification and for any inconveniece that this may cause. We are planning to reschedule the meeting this spring, and we will let you know as soon as a date has been set. We are very excited about having this meeting, and we hope that the change in date will not affect your desire to attend.

Thank you for your consideration and patience.
