Dear LSA Members,

We are coordinating with the speakers and will confirm the educational agenda in the coming months. The AOD airway course on Sunday April 19, 2020 is also cancelled. We are looking into options for rescheduling.

For those of you who have already registered for the LSA meeting you will have the option of a refund now or maintain the registration until the October meeting. . Please contact Janna at if you need a refund.
We appreciate your understanding in this unprecedented time and we hope to see you in New Orleans in October.
