“Those who were fortunate enough to attend our annual meeting already had the opportunity to learn from these renowned clinicians, but we understand that sometimes extenuating circumstances—such as school, work, or financial pressures—make it difficult to attend some years,” said AO President Dr. Russell Nishimura. “Our goal with these webinars is to share this scientific information beyond the meeting to ensure as many clinicians as possible have access to it.”
