AANEM 2020 Annual Meeting Goes Virtual

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) will conduct the 2020 Annual Meeting in a virtual format. The difficult decision was made after months of analysis, discussion, debate, as well as feedback from members.

“We all wanted the result of our discussions to be that we would meet in person. We wanted to see each other and learn together. Unfortunately, with the recent surge of COVID-19 in Florida, the travel bans on our members and the risk to our patients, the Board was forced to conclude that holding the meeting in Orlando in 2020 was impossible,” said AANEM President Yuen So, MD.

AANEM is in the process of identifying what the virtual meeting will look like.

“Not having an in-person meeting is a big change for AANEM. For years, people have traveled to our meeting from all over North America and around the world. While we will miss not seeing everyone in person this year, we have a great opportunity to present our scientific content in a fresh new way,” said AANEM Executive Director Shirlyn Adkins.
