Annual Meeting

Mark Your Calendar for AANEM's 2021 Annual Meeting in Aurora, Colorado, October 13-16!

AANEM is heading to beautiful Aurora, Colorado - the Gateway to the Rockies - for its 2021 Annual Meeting. From October 13-16, you’ll have the chance to participate in the premier event in NM and EDX medicine. This is a great opportunity to learn about the latest developments, network with your colleagues and peers, and earn CME/CEU credits.

The plenary topic for the AANEM 2021 Annual Meeting is “New Worlds, New Ways.” AANEM President Bonnie Weigert, MD, says the goal is to build on the plenary programs of the past several meetings, which have focused on the new groundbreaking treatments for multiple NM diseases.

“We hope to look at the clinical progress of those treatments and the ethical challenges they present,” said Dr. Weigert. “Is it a ‘Brave New World’ as some might fear, or the ‘shining, shimmering, splendid’ Disney version? And with the pandemic, hopefully looking forward at how we can better address care for our NM patients, along with the disparities in healthcare and for those who provide it.”
