The Cabo Meeting is not your typical “lectures and exhibit meeting.” In fact, it is refreshingly different, focusing lightly on lectures while zeroing in on lively discussion. It’s your chance to ask the questions you care about. How can you adapt to changes in healthcare? Which new technologies and techniques merit your attention? What tips can further improve your outcomes?
The 2017 KASS Annual Meeting will be held June 22-24, 2017 at the spectacular Grand Wailea Resort on Maui.

The complete program and course brochure will be available in Fall 2016.
