ASDP 58th Virtual Annual Meeting

Message from Program Committee Chairs

Dear Members of the ASDP,‎

Earlier this year you received a notice of this year’s meeting once again being held in an online setting. ‎Although we are disappointed that we will not meet in person again this year, the ongoing COVID-19 ‎public health emergency has led the Program Committee and the Board of Directors to make the ‎difficult decision to hold a virtual meeting again in 2021. Although it may feel like we have returned ‎largely to our pre-pandemic routines, many medical institutions continue to enforce travel restrictions ‎and/or limited funding for travel and continuing medical education. And with so many uncertainties ‎remaining about what this fall will bring, the ASDP leadership unanimously agreed that your safety and ‎health are of utmost importance. ‎

The Program Committee, countless volunteers, and staff have been hard at work developing the ‎content for our virtual program. We’ve listened to your feedback from last year’s meeting and have ‎already made some adjustments for 2021.‎ Some of the highlights for this year’s meeting include:‎
  • A return to our usual four-day schedule (Thursday to Sunday) with plenary sessions offered ‎both morning and afternoon (while some optional consultations will start on Wednesday, ‎October 20, the plenary program will commence Thursday morning).‎
  • Ability to claim up to 41 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM through the plenary program alone (6 ‎more ‎credits than last year).‎
  • More opportunities sprinkled throughout the meeting for oral abstract presenters to share ‎their research. ‎
  • An expanded menu of on-demand plenary presentations, allowing you to breakout from the ‎scheduled meeting program to attend optional live Consultations and Seminars.‎
  • A return of live social events including an online gathering prior to the Evening Slide ‎Symposium and the highly popular Meet the Program Directors session.‎
Stay tuned for additional updates as more details are confirmed. In the meantime, feel free to peruse ‎the preliminary program. Meeting ‎registration will open in a few weeks.‎
