Rogers receives national continence care award
Dr. Rebecca G. Rogers, a professor in the University of New Mexico Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, recently received the Rodney Appell "Continenance Care Champion" award from the National Association for Continence.
“Continence conditions are real and frequently diagnosed yet women are reluctant to discuss them," said Dr. Eve Espey, chair for the UNM School of Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. "Dr. Roger’s dedication to working with her patients to address these issues has improved the lives of women across the state of New Mexico.”
Rogers is a UNM Regent’s Professor, director of the Division of Urogynecology and the director of the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship at UNM.
“Dr. Rogers has made significant contributions to the field of Urogynecology over the years, in addition to a distinguished career as a physician and researcher," said Dr. Donna Deng, chair of the National Association for Continence Board. "Her service as a past president of the (American Urogynecologic Society) is proof of her dedication and ongoing commitment to the field of continence care.”
Established in 2000 to recognize health care providers who serve as role models for outstanding contributions in research, education and clinical practice, the Appell Continence Care Champion Award raises awareness among a variety of professional societies and elevates the importance of addressing incontinence.
