AANA presents this exclusive webinar:

The New Coronavirus and Practice Management Strategies to Keep Your Practice Alive and Well Q2-Q4 2020 | Thursday, April 2, 2020 | 7-8 p.m. CDT/8-9 p.m. EDT

Join a panel of AANA Leaders as they discuss ways to navigate the threats and challenges of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. AANA wants all practices to weather this storm and remain healthy and viable to ultimately resume the care of patients once the acute phase of this crisis has passed.

The unprecedented disruptions of the outbreak have forced significant and sudden change upon everyone practicing medicine in the U.S. and worldwide. Orthopaedics has been impacted severely with a moratorium on elective surgery and the management of non-acute pathology. The clinical and economic ramifications are presenting an existential threat to our orthopaedic practices and their ability to deliver medical services.

We have assembled an amazing panel of AANA Leaders who are on the frontlines managing the response to the pandemic and fulfilling their obligation to patient care. Please join us Thursday and learn how these leaders are handling the crisis.
