A maternal-fetal medicine specialist, Cecilia Lyons Gaffaney currently practices in Dallas, Texas. She is passionate about bringing the best medical care to women and their babies. In order to keep up-to-date in her field, Dr. Cecilia Gaffaney holds membership in the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, or ACOG. This organization is dedicated to improving the practices of physicians in gynecology and obstetrics. For example, a course offered by ACOG is designed to help doctors master new administrative duties.
The course being offered in summer 2014 is titled, “Essentials for the Ob-Gyn Department Chair: Strategic Planning, Financial Management, and Decision Making.” It will be led by ACOG experts who will act as mentors to these new chairs.
