All indicators point to the SIR 40th Annual Scientific Meeting being an overwhelming success: From the high number of attendees taking advantage of educational opportunities to the dynamic energy felt throughout SIR Expo.
“I am grateful to all those who worked tirelessly to develop this year’s meeting,” said SIR 2015 Chair Jafar Golzarian, MD, FSIR, “especially Workshop Chair J. Fritz Angle, MD, FSIR, Scientific Session Chair Robert Lewandowski, MD, FSIR, SIR 2014 Chair Daniel B. Brown, MD, FSIR, and Clinical Associate Committee Liaison Gail Egan, NP. All of this year’s invited faculty have been tremendous as well.” Some particularly popular sessions drew such a high volume of attendees that they were moved to larger rooms to accommodates the crowds.
“I am equally thankful to all the other volunteers and our wonderful corporate supporters in SIR’s new Corporate Ambassador Program,” concluded Dr. Golzarian.
SIR President James B. Spies, MD, MPH, FSIR, agreed with the assessment, pointing to strong registration numbers: “SIR 2015 has shown the highest physician turnout in several years,” he said. “That may be the biggest indication of how much the IR community values SIR and what our annual meeting offers them.” SIR Executive Director Susan E. Sedory Holzer, MA, CAE, added, “Ultimately, the meeting’s success stems from our members and friends in industry, and we thank them for their continued confidence.”
