AHS Inclusivity and Non-Discrimination Policy

Americas Hernia Society is a diverse and inclusive group of academic and private practice surgeons from the Americas (Central, North and South America and the Caribbean) dedicated to improving the value of care for patients with abdominal wall hernia disease. AHS believes that greater inclusivity among its members supports AHS’s work to improve the value of care for patients. AHS does not discriminate or tolerate discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion or on any other basis. Inflammatory, demeaning and unjust language, images and actions have no place within a medical society dedicated to improving the quality of care for patients. Any such language, images or actions directed toward any person, gender or minority groups or others in any activity sponsored by AHS will not be tolerated by AHS.  Civility and respect is owed to all and is required of all persons participating in AHS’s activities. AHS welcomes all persons committed to uniting academic and private surgeons, allied health providers, industry, payers, and patients in a collaborative endeavor to improve the health of hernia patients.
