On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Florida Society of Anesthesiologists (FSA), we would like to invite you to the paradise that is the Breakers Resort, home this year to the FSA Annual Meeting.
2020 marks the 72nd year since the founding of our society and we want to thank you for being a member of the FSA and ASA. Our profession has made remarkable strides in safety and it is through the support of physicians like you that we are able to continue our work of advocacy for our patients and our specialty. This weekend, we look forward to meeting all of you, whether in the lectures, exhibit hall, or poolside to get your valuable feedback on where the FSA should be focusing its efforts.
ASA leadership will also be here to give us their thoughts on nation-wide issues, and we are very proud to welcome back Andy Harris, MD, the first anesthesiologist in the US Congress, as he presents his unique perspective on what’s happening in Washington DC. His talk is not to be missed as it will certainly be insightful and entertaining.
We hope you will enjoy getting to know your fellow physicians and share your experiences on what makes your anesthesia practice successful. As our specialty faces many pressures, it is refreshing to be in an environment where everyone around us understands our mutual challenges.
It is our sincere hope that this time away from work affords you the chance to relax and learn something new to take back to your group.
