The leading authority on women's health
To give women of all ages instant access to a variety of health information, the New York State Chapter of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG District II) launched the Well-Woman website.
Based in Washington DC, ACOG is an organization with close to 55,000 members and is the leading group of physicians in the US providing health care for women.
The District II Chapter represents more than 4,100 ACOG members who deliver health care to New York’s women. District II maintains a full complement of professional staff and an office in the state capital of Albany. ACOG District II is one of the state’s most trusted and credible voices on all aspects of female health care.
Board certification in ob-gyn is a requirement to become an ACOG Fellow, and more than 90% of American Board Certified ob-gyns are affiliated with ACOG.
