Today, with our 215th presentation, we surpassed a huge milestone — presenting to 10,000 medical students and residents!
What a great accomplishment for all of us, and to reach this level in just over three years! We are so proud of what we have accomplished, and thank our speakers, advisors, and supporters for their contributions. Without question, we could not have done it without them!
Each of these physicians, and future physicians, will go on to see hundreds, if not thousands, of patients during their career — so there is an astounding multiplier impact! We know that among those 10,000 attendees there were many who will never forget their patient speaker who shared their journey through symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. We also know there will be future amyloidosis diagnoses among this group; perhaps diagnoses that are made sooner than had they not attended an ASB presentation? We believe there will be.
Until we are no longer needed, there remains much work to do, and we are thrilled to help raise awareness to the healthcare community.
Have a great day!
