Information for our Vendors

The 15th Annual McCahan Education Day has been postponed to a later date. In light of the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee will honor all Abstract submissions when it considers Awards for Best Student Abstract and Best Resident/Fellow Abstract, regardless of whether that student, resident or fellow has graduated by the time of the rescheduled event. Stay tuned for more details about the rescheduled McCahan Education Day.
