TTUHSC El Paso Hosts 12th Annual Obstetrics and Gynecology Symposium

Physicians, nurses, health care professionals, and students will gather for the 12th Annual Obstetrics and Gynecology Symposium on Friday. The conference, jointly hosted by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) and University Medical Center of El Paso, will focus on OB-GYN issues that are prevalent along the U.S.-Mexico border.

At 10:15 a.m., Vijaya Galic, M.D., will present “21st Century Gynecological Cancer Care on the Border.” Dr. Galic is chief of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso and an assistant professor at TTUHSC El Paso. She joined the institution in December 2016 and specializes in the treatment of advanced ovarian cancer, offering the latest interventions to improve survival, including radical surgical procedures, intra-abdominal chemotherapy, and precision medicine.

Dr. Galic is an expert in curative operations for women with primary and recurrent uterine and cervical cancer, including procedures to preserve fertility.

Dr. Galic earned her M.D. at the University of Washington School of Medicine and M.B.A. at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Galic later completed a joint fellowship program in gynecologic oncology at New York Presbyterian Hospital through Cornell University and Columbia University.

Additional symposium topics will include labor pain and epidurals in the borderland, risk factors for gestational hypertension and preeclampsia, and contraceptive counseling for adolescents along the Texas-Mexico border.

The event will be keynoted by Jason D. Wright, M.D., chief of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Columbia University.

The 12 Annual Obstetrics and Gynecology Symposium was organized by the Office of Continuing Medical Education.
