May 2-3, 2020 marked a historic weekend for the AAO, with the first-ever virtual annual session. AAO members made this weekend a resounding success and the premier orthodontic CE opportunity.
AAO members have represented the AAO in four virtual meetings with Senators over the past few weeks including Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), Sen. Cory Gardner (Colorado), Sen. John Cornyn (Texas) and Sen. Mark Warner (Virginia), and Sen. Bill Cassidy (Louisianna).
AAO leaders and members faced unusual challenges during 2019-20. Nonetheless, with expert leadership and a dedicated team, we finished the year with many successful efforts addressing the needs of members and the specialty and adding value to membership.
The AAO is taking another step forward in supporting the specialty by investing in advancements in patient care via its Innovation and Transformation Fund. The Fund's second investment has been made in the KLOwen Custom Braces System.
