You Are Invited to the 2019 Scientific Meeting!
On behalf of the Scientific Program Committee, I am delighted to invite you to attend the American Pain Society's Scientific Meeting in Milwaukee, WI, April 3-6, 2019. The meeting’s theme is "Combating the Opioid Epidemic through Innovations in the Treatment of Pain." Our goal is to create a comprehensive, shared meeting experience to fully explore this theme through plenary lectures, new presentation types, interactive networking sessions, SIG meetings, poster sessions, and exhibits.
This program has been designed to offer informative and insightful content from the best in the field. Our esteemed faculty will present their latest clinical, translational, and basic science research in 3 plenary sessions, 15 60-minute sessions, 10 30-minute sessions, and 15 SIG meetings. There will also be roundtable discussions and new networking opportunities that will allow you to interact with your fellow pain professionals. Along with this excellent scientific programming, we invite you to explore the updated Experience Exchange, take part in poster voting, attend the early career forum, and honor APS award recipients.
Milwaukee is a city that cherishes its roots; you’ll see revitalized architecture throughout downtown, and a parade of festivals to celebrate the diverse cultures that make the city what it is today. But Milwaukee is also a city that’s growing and changing. From new arenas to the revival of streets and neighborhoods around the city, there’s a new energy in the air.
Extend your stay to experience all the city has to offer. From eco-friendly initiatives to help appreciate Milwaukee’s natural beauty to the numerous breweries and delicious restaurants to catch up with old friends, Milwaukee is an exciting city to explore.
It is an honor to serve as the chair for the 2019 Scientific Program Committee, and I look forward to seeing you all at the meeting!
