Fall Meeting

The Fall Meeting includes the presentation of papers and a symposium that draws upon the expertise of local faculty. An informal atmosphere allows for interchange among colleagues and an opportunity to visit the institutions of peers. Since 1978 the Society has presented the Sidney Farber Lecture which features an in-depth view of current topics in developmental pathology. If you are considering hosting a fall meeting, please contact Melissa Marick from AOE at [email protected].
