As is the case with many regional and national medical conferences, we are trying to get back to a full in-person conference.  We would ask that you strongly consider attending in person—it truly adds to the collegiality of the experience for all of us. Lecturers like speaking to an engaged in-person audience, especially when they have travelled across the country to attend our conference. It also gives many of us the chance to see colleagues we haven’t seen in a few years and an opportunity to talk with nationally known speakers after their lectures.
