2020 AANA Annual Meeting Update:
The Arthroscopy Association of North America’s Executive Committee has made the critical and necessary decision to cancel the AANA 2020 Annual Meeting scheduled for May 7-9, 2020 in Grapevine, Texas.
Great consideration was given to the health of AANA staff, partners, volunteers, members – and of course, the patients of our members. The AANA staff and Executive Committee have been communicating regularly to discuss the evolving situation and explored all possible options. With guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state departments, AANA concluded that the best course of action was to exercise extreme caution and cancel the meeting.
We want to thank the faculty that were prepared to deliver valuable content and research, a hallmark of the AANA Annual Meeting that has made it such an important meeting for Orthopaedic Surgeons from across the globe. Thank you to our Corporate Partners and exhibitors, whose presence enhances our meeting and supports the organization as it advances the scope of orthopaedic surgery.
Attendees, please check your email for information regarding registration fees. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
We are looking forward to calmer and healthier times, so please save the date for the AANA 40th Anniversary celebrations at AANA21 in Chicago, April 22-24, 2021! Be well and stay healthy.
Larry D. Field, M.D.
AANA Lab Course Update:
As of March 15, 2020, the CDC has recommended "that for the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the U.S." – this does not impact the June 12-14, 2020 AANA Lab Course. AANA staff is meeting on a regular basis with key stakeholders, including the Orthopaedic Learning Center, and will continue to monitor this very fluid situation. AANA is actively planning to ensure our upcoming meetings are as safe as possible for all participants. While the current cancellation policy for AANA Lab Courses holds, we are sensitive to challenges due to the virus and travel restrictions. Please let us know if your institutions and employers have enacted any travel restrictions or protocols for the month of June, firstname.lastname@example.org. Check this page for the latest updates.
