2020 Annual Meeting Schedule


We are privileged each year to come together to hear detailed case material and to talk openly with colleagues about the work we share, yet often carry out in isolation. In a group such as ours, it goes without saying that what we hear in any of the clinical meetings and discussions is also privileged. It never hurts, however, to restate out commitment to respecting the confidentiality of the clinical material that is the basis for our mutual learning here at our scientific meeting. We are grateful to the presenters for entrusting us with their work.
