Newswise — ROCHESTER, Minn. - The American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) is offering a new virtual educational meeting with access to added content. The first ever AANEM Spring Virtual Conference will be held March 2-5, 2021. This is another chance for members and nonmembers to learn from leaders in neuromuscular (NM) and electrodiagnostic (EDX) medicine, all from the safety, comfort, and convenience of their home or office.

“We are excited to offer this spring conference and believe it may be a new option we offer every year if it is well received,” said AANEM Executive Director, Shirlyn A. Adkins, JD. “The pandemic has changed the way everyone views online education and we heard from many members who enjoyed the virtual meeting concept. This won’t replace the annual meeting, since many members still want to meet in person and network in a live setting, but a virtual format provides an alternative for those who just aren’t able to make the in person meeting.”

The conference will include more than 20 sessions on a wide variety of topics, including “Infection and Immunization in NM Disorders with Emphasis on COVID-19,” “Transitioning the Child to Adult NM Care,” and “Teleneurology and Technology in NM.” There will also be basic sessions on topics including NCS: Axonal, Demyelinating or Anomaly,” “EDX of Radiculopathy,” and “EMG Study Design.”
