Got Research in Neuromuscular/Electrodiagnostic Medicine? Submit Abstracts for the 2019 AANEM Annual Meeting by March 15


Newswise — (ROCHESTER, Minnesota, Jan. 2, 2019) – If you’re looking for the perfect venue to share your scientific research in neuromuscular or electrodiagnostic medicine, look no further! The American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) is now accepting abstracts for its 2019 annual meeting in Austin, Texas.

Abstract submission forms are available on the AANEM website (www.aanem.org/Meetings/Annual-Meeting/Abstracts) and will be accepted through March 15, 2019. All abstracts selected for presentation at the 2019 meeting will be published in the association’s prestigious journal, Muscle & Nerve.

“The abstracts are a very important aspect of our AANEM Annual Meeting as this is where new ideas and observations are shared,” said Anthony E. Chiodo, MD, MBA, and current AANEM President. “You get everyone from medical students and residents to accomplished senior researchers presenting their work in this form. We have a very strong academic meeting and it means something to be included in the roster of poster presenters.”

“Sharing the latest research developments in neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine is an integral part of each AANEM Annual Meeting,” said Shirlyn A. Adkins, JD, Executive Director, AANEM. “We are thrilled with the incredible abstracts submitted to our meeting year after year. It really is a fantastic opportunity for researchers of all stages in their careers to showcase their work and engage in discussions about it with not only their peers, but experts in the fields of neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine.” 

“I think anyone in the field of neuromuscular or electrodiagnostic medicine should submit their work to the AANEM Annual Meeting,” said Ryan Castoro, DO, MS, recipient of a 2018 President’s Research Initiative Award and a 2018 Residency and Fellowship Member Award. “There are few meetings in medicine where nearly all the experts converge in one place, but the AANEM meeting is one of them. Submitting an abstract is a great opportunity to further develop your work and career and the entire submission process was very simple and straightforward.”
