The ANS Fabulous Friday & Super Saturday
meetings will be online this Fall! 

Dear Members and attendees,

We have been gearing up for our annual Fall Super Saturday meeting and looking forward to seeing everyone in Boston, but circumstances have forced us to pivot from an in person meeting to a virtual, online meeting.  The ANS Executive Council felt that, given the coronavirus pandemic and concerns for the health and safety of our members coupled with the economic hardship for everyone stemming from restrictions on elective surgeries and ambulatory clinic visits, conducting a virtual, online meeting simply makes good sense. 

The recent announcement by the AAO-HNSF that their Annual Meeting will also be virtual fortified our resolve to make our Fabulous Friday and Super Saturday meeting an innovative, creative educational forum….that you can enjoy and participate from the comfort of your own home and home brewed java!!  

We are working hard to bring you all of the education/camaraderie you’re used to through online resources until we can meet again in person (we’re hoping for the Spring COSM meeting 2021).

In the meantime, be on the lookout for announcements about content, date, and time. 

While we are looking forward to a time when we can connect in person again, we are so excited about this opportunity to present educational material in a different format.  We still plan to have panels, talks, Study Groups, etc., and it will be lively, fun, and engaging for everyone (with a possible audience response system!). Submit your case, see details below. 

If you have any questions, if you have creative ideas for content, or if you would like to comment on a virtual experience, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

All your favorites will still be available during the virtual meeting! It's the best education day of the year!

ANS FALL MEETING CALL FOR ABSTRACTS! 

Do you have a patient that has kept you awake at night? 
Have you encountered a particularly case? 
Or a patient from whom you've learned a valuable lesson?  

We want to hear about it!!

The ANS is soliciting abstracts for a panel entitled, "My Scariest Case" to be presented at the Fall Meeting.

If you have a patient or patient experience that we all could learn from, please share it with us by sending in a one page (2 paragraph) abstract (word document, save as with your last name).  Describe the clinical scenario in the first paragraph and tell us what you learned from the case in the second paragraph.  The meeting planners will review all abstracts and select several of you to present your case at the ANS Fall Meeting.
SEND ABSTRACTS TO KRISTEN BY JUNE 15: [email protected]
