On behalf of the LOA Board of Directors, you are cordially invited to attend our 2020 Louisiana Orthopaedic Association Annual Meeting slated for March 6–7, 2020 in New Orleans. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of our block of hotel rooms, especially discounted for you and your guests, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel.

Dr. Patrick Massey, our 2020 Annual Meeting Program Director, has designed an outstanding agenda. Our three keynote speakers include:

LOA members who attend the LAMMICO risk management lectures on Friday and Saturday will receive a discount on their professional liability insurance premiums.

We also invite you to attend the President’s Reception on Friday March 6.  The Reception will be held in the Exhibit Hall.  The winner of the hotly contested Top Resident Paper will be announced at that time. We will again have the exhibitor game card to give meeting attendees a chance to win a prize. 

On Friday, March 6, we will host an Orthopaedic Business Managers meeting. We have a great lineup of speakers to update your practice managers / administrators on legal and legislative matters impacting orthopaedic surgeons.  On Saturday March 7, there will be an e-poster session from 11:00 - 11:45 am.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans for the 2020 LOA Annual Meeting.

The LOA Annual Meeting is a great place to earn valuable continuing medical education, learn from your colleagues and our keynote speakers, network and mingle with your orthopaedic colleagues and visit our trade show to gather information on the latest products and services for orthopaedic practices.
