Critical Issues and Common Pitfalls
 
Presented by the Medical Association of the State of Alabama, the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners and the Alabama Board of Nursing

NOVEMBER 2020 IN-PERSON PRESCRIBING AND PHARMACOLOGY OF CONTROLLED DRUGS MEETING CANCELLED; PLANS TO MOVE TO A VIRTUAL MEETING

We are very disappointed to report that due to COVID-19 the in-person 2020 November Prescribing and Pharmacology meeting has been cancelled.  This decision did not come lightly, but the Medical Association decided that cancellation is the only reasonable way to ensure that the event does not contribute to the spread of the virus.  The health and well-being of our attendees, faculty and staff is of utmost importance to our association.

The good news is that we are in the process of planning a virtual meeting.  If you have registered for any of the 2020 in-person meetings and you choose to join the virtual meeting, we will honor your registration. 

As more information becomes available, we will update you on the date(s) of our virtual meeting and other relevant details.  Please keep a watch for updates here and via the email addresses you used to register for the in-person events.

If you have additional questions regarding your current registration, please call Margaret McGuire at (334) 954-2519 or email her at mmcquire@alamedical.org
