Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Our Annual Meeting is less than one month away and I am honored and delighted to be serving as the Association's President as we host our 98th Annual Meeting at the beautiful Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel. Our Program Chairs, Drs. Peter Neligan and Richard Hopper, have done an outstanding job in putting together this year's program, and I urge you to review the online program available on our website and see the depth of the oral papers and posters which we are presenting in 2019. Also, thanks to Drs. Mark Constantian and Jim Grotting for leading our Aesthetic Symposium, with a series of focused lectures by the leaders in our aesthetic specialty, as well as Drs. Mike Neumeister and Joe Disa, who have put together what promises to be a tremendous Reconstructive Symposium. More

Cannon Medical Student AAPS Scholarship

We are excited to once again this year make it possible for medical students to attend the AAPS Annual Meeting in Baltimore. Donations from Cannon Members supported 17 medical students to attend last year's Annual Meeting in Seattle, providing meeting registration, hotel for two nights and meals for our Cannon students. This year we are pleased to be able to bring 21 medical students to the AAPS Annual Meeting in Baltimore with the generous donations from Cannon Members!
