"The first takeaway I would say is that there is not only a lot of passion for each of these different areas in our society, but also there's a lot of expertise and experience within our urologic community from which we can all draw upon," says Manoj Monga, MD, FACS.
The Urology for Social Responsibility meeting took place on January 14-15, 2023 at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
