SOGH 8th Annual Clinical Meeting

Join Us September 27 - 30, 2018 at The Hilton Cleveland Downtown & Global Center!


September 27 - 30, 2018

A Message From the Co-Chairs

We are thrilled to be serving as Co-Chairs for the 2018 Annual Clinical Meeting (ACM), scheduled this year for September 27-30 in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. As residents of the northern U.S., we are delighted SOGH has begun regionally locating its annual conferences, and chosen Cleveland, The North Coast city, to host this year’s event!

Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cleveland Museum of Art (Voted the #2 Art Museum in the U.S.) and the Cleveland Clinic (U.S. News and World Report's #2 Hospital in the U.S.). Cleveland is also circled by an extensive network of Metroparks, known as the Emerald Necklace.

Our conference will be located in the newly remodeled downtown Hilton, adjacent to the Global Center for Health Innovation, a facility replete with the latest advancements in healthcare research, equipment and technology and whose mission is to “host and educate the country’s medical and health care community”.

We are committed to continuing the tradition making this year’s ACM even better than the last and will communicate often as we solidify our plans. Mark your calendars now and see you in C Town!
