EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM & SCHEDULE
Dr. Jayne Weiss, Chair of the Committee on Programs, and Dr. Edward Buckley, Council Chair, have been hard at work planning exciting symposia for the 157th meeting of this unique Society. More details on these sessions will be posted soon.
The meeting will kick-off on Friday morning with the inaugural Marilyn T. Miller Lecture, which will be presented by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. We are delighted to welcome Dr. Fauci to the AOS meeting and look forward to seeing his presentation.
Paper abstracts will be presented on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Abstracts that are chosen for oral presentations will be scheduled on one of these days. Discussants will be invited for each of the presentations, and the virtual platform we select will facilitate Q&A sessions to engage the audience.
Depending on the number of abstract submissions we receive, we would like to include posters in our virtual platform. More information about the format and moderated poster sessions will be provided once abstracts close.
We will include New Member Spotlight Presentations to showcase our new members accepted into the AOS since June 2019. These sessions will be broken up over the course of the meeting.
The newly named "AOS Medal" will be presented virtually on Saturday evening. Please join us in congratulating this well-deserved honoree!
