The AANEM annual meeting is awesome! The multitude of courses and workshops focusing on all realms of electrodiagnosis, neuromuscular diseases, and neuromuscular ultrasound continually provide me with new knowledge that I can use in my practice. It’s a great learning experience and lots of fun, too!
