The ASMBS is pleased to offer nine roundtable luncheons where you will have the opportunity to meet with the known experts in a more intimate setting than the postgraduate courses or Scientific Session symposia. The format of these roundtable activities is unique – it will be like visiting with a group of friends with whom you have similar interests over a meal in your dining room! The facilitators for each of these luncheons will build a platform for discussion and networking and will answer any questions you might have. And the icing on the cake is…1.5 hours of CME/CEU credit is available, and registration for each topic is limited to 50!
