We are excited to announce APSA's 5th Annual meeting held in conjunction with the Association of American Physicians (AAP) and the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI).

Why should you attend the 5th Annual APSA meeting?

* Expand your knowledge on a number of topics.
* Find yourself face-to-face with top physician-scientists in the country.
* The largest meeting of physician-scientists from the student, to the resident/fellow, the the young investigator, to the professor, researcher, manager, CEO, VP, director, and other established physician-scientists.
* A unique environment combining academia, industry, and government.
* A great chance to network.
* Submit your abstract to be considered for travel awards ($500) and present your research to win numerous poster awards ($1000) offered by the APSA and ASCI/AAP

** Please note the deadline for submitting abstracts for the CSCR/MWAFMR awards is December 12, 2008.**

Thanks for answering my question! And I'm assuming being a non-member does not affect the chances of your winning a travel award?

I'm not sure where else to post this...

I'm looking for a male roommate to split hotel costs at the Fairmont for Fri - Sun for the 2009 APSA / ASCI / AAP meeting. Unfortunately the room is has a king bed (they didn't have any doubles available). I'm normal and don't smoke / snore / smell bad. I had a friend bail on the trip last minute, and really don't want to eat the $260/night hotel bill on my own. Please contact me at sorenmj [at] gmail.com if interested.

Thanks!
