NMA 116th Annual Conference

By Corrinne Fahl

This year the 116th NMA Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly was held in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, and OID was in attendance for our third year in a row as exhibitors!

This is one of the biggest conventions we attend every year and we are so pleased with the warm embrace we keep receiving from attendees and Penn Alumni. As an exhibitor we discuss the various programs OID coordinates as well as programs we help sponsor throughout Penn Medicine. We chat with everyone from pre-med undergraduates to attending physicians from all over the country, and of course, give out our fabulous “swag” as we like to call it.

Like many institutions, we held an alumni reception (hosted by Dr. Judith Mackenzie) which was well attended. It was great chatting with our past and present Penn family and we are so happy that Penn alumni near and far are hearing about the great work OID is doing.
