SIS Presidential Welcome Address
The SIS is a relatively small but dedicated family of incredibly talented researchers and surgeons. It is unique in the fluidity with which these diverse groups can interact to advance both basic and clinical science. My goals for the year include achieving a better definition of the field of surgical infections through the Curriculum Project headed by Jeffrey Upperman and the Education Committee and developing a rational paradigm for the evaluation of diverse forms of effectiveness research in the fields of surgery and surgical infections, a job given to Marc Jeschke and the Scientific Studies Committee. I look forward to an exciting year and the next annual meeting in Las Vegas.
