Message from the President

posted: October 30, 2020

Dear Friends and colleagues,

It is my privilege to begin my term as the President of the Northeastern Section of the American Urological Association. As we move forward in these tumultuous times, let’s remember the victims of COVID-19 and the front-line healthcare workers in our thoughts and prayers.

I would like to extend my appreciation to Dr. Kenneth Pace (our immediate past president), the program committee and the WJ Weiser team for their demonstrable agility in the midst of the
pandemic to pivot from a live conference to a very successful virtual conference.

We are planning for the 2021 Annual Conference to be held on September 3 – 5, 2021 at the Hilton Bonaventure in Montreal. We are cautiously optimistic that it’ll be safe to meet in person by then! We are planning a robust scientific program with the help of our program committee, Chaired by Dr. Charles Welliver from Albany. More than just lectures, the program will be interactive in nature, including debates and discussions.

This social distancing has gone on for too long and we all miss seeing our friends and colleagues.

So, please make plans to attend the conference and enjoy the fantastic social events planned for you. The conference will take place during the Labor Day weekend. It’s a perfect opportunity to bring along your family members to enjoy Montreal in late summer! Please mark your calendars and share the dates with your colleagues.

Montreal awaits your arrival!

Badar M. Mian, MD, FACS
President, NSAUA
