Female Factors in Hernia Award

The Female Factors in Hernia Award promotes research and awareness of gender as they pertain to hernia evaluation, repair, and their outcomes. Qualifying abstracts can be orals, posters, or videos, and will be judged by the Program Committee. The winner will be awarded with $2,000 to support travel expenses for the meeting. 


The Program Committee will determine the best abstract that addresses gender-based factors in hernia. The research project must separately evaluate females in their analysis of their research question, and shed light on important gender-based similarities or differences, but is not required to exclusively study females.
