The SUS Resident Research Scholar Award, Junior Faculty Research Award, and Mid Career Award winners presented at 2 special sessions at the 2020 Academic Surgical Congress. The first session was a closed session for the SUS Executive Council where the winners had the opportunity to present in an intimate setting for 10 minutes, with 5 minutes of Q&A. It allows the SUS leadership to learn in-depth about the research projects. The second session was the AAS/SUS Research Awards Session, where the presenters were recognized by SUS Scholarship Chair Dr. Rebekeh White and SUS President Dr. Gregory Kennedy.
