Dinner Lecture Series

Seattle Gynecologic Society’s Dinner Lecture Series

Due to Covid-19 we have moved our SGS Lecture Series to a live online format via Zoom. Members are encouraged to join us from the comfort and safety of their homes for a stimulating and pertinent gynecological lecture.

Please join us for our bi-monthly dinner lecture series brought to you by the Seattle GYN Society. This is a wonderful time to sit down with colleagues over a delicious dinner and socialize. Following the meal there is a 60 minute educational presentation by a medical expert on important gynecological issues, followed by a lively Question & Answer session. To join us, please RSVP below, as space is limited. The dinner lecture series is complimentary to all current, paid SGS members.

For Life Members there is a $50 charge. This discounted fee is in recognition of your years of membership and support. You pay Kim Conn at the door, but please pre-register for the evening.

Non-members there is a $75 fee to cover the dinner and lecture for one visit. We limit this option to a one time visit so that interested doctors can come and experience the SGS dinner lecture event with us, and will hopefully be encouraged to join our SGS family. 

The SGS Lecture Series is sponsored by Educational Grants from AbbVie, GSK, Boston Scientific & Foundation Medicine.

The SGS Dinner Lecture Series are held on the second Wednesday of the month. To join the SGS, please visit our membership page and submit an application on line today.
