I had the pleasure of attending the 12th American Society of Cosmetic Surgeons Annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas last month. What an adventure it was! Hurricane Harvey struck Corpus Christi, Texas which is located only two hours away. Because of this impending storm, a few speakers did not show up. I happened to be there when Harvey made landfall, sitting in cosmetic lectures as Houston was starting to flood. San Antonio did not get too damaged by the wind gusts. We all know what happened to Houston in the aftermath, and may God bless those people who had to endure that tragedy. God bless those who looked beyond themselves and helped others. It was indeed quite a devastation and continues to be an ongoing effort to get the city back to normal.
The course ended up being enjoyable as I was able to converse with others and compare cosmetic techniques. I was actually tentatively invited to speak at the next annual meeting. I told them I’d be honored, but since speaking in front of large audiences is not my forte, I’ll start preparing now.
Thank you for reading.
