Join Us For Our 57th Annual Meeting
This year SOMOS heads to the lovely Gulf Coast of Florida, St. Petersburg to be exact, for our 57th Annual Meeting. Our program committee, chaired by Travis Burns and Matthew Schmitz, has been hard at work creating a stellar scientific program, which is worth a maximum of 30.74 AMA PRA Category 1 credits. Returning this year will be the Resident Review Course, provided at no additional charge, to residents by Dr. Frank Frassica on Monday, Dec. 7th. Space is limited so be sure to sign up after registering for the meeting! New this year, SOMOS brings you Rapid Fire Sessions - 4 concurrent sessions each focusing on a specialized topic for smaller groups to break down and concentrate on areas of particular interest. We also have posters, symposia, paper presentations, and more as usual. We can't wait to see you there!
The deadline for room reservations was November 16, 2015. If you are still in need of a room, please contact Stacy Wald at email@example.com.
