AT THE 143rd ANNUAL MEETING

 COSM IS BACK WITH ON-SITE MEETINGS IN 2022

REGISTRATION OPENS ON JANUARY 11, 2022

 

As the United States and some of our international partners continue to make progress in reducing the number of active COVID-19 cases, the ALA is pleased to announce our 143rd Annual Meeting will be held on site at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dallas, Texas during three-half-day sessions on April 28-30. Along with our sister societies, we remain committed to the health and welfare of our members and attendees. We encourage you to view the COSM website, https://cosm.md/ for additional information regarding participating societies and to register once registration opens on January 11, 2022 at www.cosm.md/registration,. To provide opportunities for those attendees who will be prohibited from attending, a virtual component of the meeting will be made available.

This year’s president, Dr. Clark Rosen, has put together an outstanding program committee, chaired by Dr. Robert Buckmire with committee members, Drs. Laura Matrka, Michael Pitman, Libby Smith and Paul Bryson. A record number of abstracts was received and the quality of those promises the program will be filled with valuable research scientific data, along with lectures by renowned scientists and researchers. Awards will be presented to individuals who have contributed significantly to our profession. For our Post-Graduate Members (PGM), the well attended Symposium will resume on August 30th. Dr. Jim Daniero and the PGM Steering Committee are diligently working on a program that will benefit our junior members. We invite you to plan to attend the President’s Reception that will provide an evening of fun and relaxation as we honor Dr. Rosen’s tenure as president, award recipients and a special presentation to our lady fellows.

COSM will again provide travel grants to a number of medical students so you are encouraged to disseminate information to your medical students once it is published on the COSM website.

We look forward to your attendance as we celebrate 143 years of meetings and providing opportunities for scientific work to presented at our annual meetings. On behalf of the ALA Council, we wish you good health and a safe and Happy Holiday Season.
