April 28, 2021

Two general surgery residents were selected for the 2021 Best of The Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO). Dr. Carlos Ayala was selected for his presentation: "Goblet Cell Origins of Human Appendiceal Mucinous Neoplasms and Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Tumors" and Dr. Kathryn Taylor was selected for her presentation “Association of Medicaid Eligibility with Outcomes and Spending for Medicare Beneficiaries Among High-Quality Hospitals for Cancer Surgery.”

"The Best of SSO program enables the SSO to share the best presentations at our meeting with other global societies," wrote SSO Senior Manager, Global Programs Ana Olivares in her notification email to Ayala.

The residents presented their abstract in March at the SSO's International Conference on Surgical Cancer Care in the peritoneal surface malignancies and quality improvement/ clinical outcomes category sections respectively. The top 50 abstracts presented at the conference make up the Best of SSO.
