I want to thank all of you for standing firm and united during a challenging year. We have faced an unexpected environment at work and at home. We stood on our ASNM mission of providing high-quality Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) to benefit patients for better postoperative outcomes, providing forums for education and disseminating knowledge in the field, developing quality standards for practice and training, and building partnerships coalitions with allied professionals.
The ASNM has been planning the new year 2021 with very informative and interactive educations programs for our members. We also want to improve our communication between ASNM members further. In 2021, ASNM will focus on providing you with educational and research-related opportunities, including basic and advance neuromonitoring techniques, up-to-date knowledge, and clinical/surgical information. There are opportunities for our members to present their research during our meetings and symposiums. I want to encourage our members and students to explore and advance the IONM technology during surgical and interventional procedures and share with our members during our educational programs. If you are interested in volunteering for any committee, please contact us now.
Thank you again, and looking forward to the new year: happy holidays and a Happy New Year to all members.
