More than 1,600 people attended the four days of educational programming which included 100 speakers, 60 lectures, 35 hands-on workshops, three entertaining and motivating general sessions, and some high energy social events.
In addition to rich educational opportunities, the scientific session is a chance for the Academy to recognize and honor its members who have demonstrated their dedication to continuing education and responsible patient care by becoming an Accredited Member or Accredited Fellow. This year, the AACD acknowledged fifteen newly Accredited Members and six newly Accredited Fellows. Other exemplary members of the Academy and of the profession were also recognized and honored with Celebration of Excellence Awards, known as the Evy.
