Annual Meeting Organizing Committee

2019 Annual Meeting Organizing Committee

AACC's 12-member volunteer Annual Meeting Organizing Committee (AMOC) develops the scientific program for the AACC Annual Scientific Meeting that makes it a must-attend education event. The committee is constituted 2 years before the meeting it is responsible for planning and is charged with developing a timely program that will serve the diverse community of laboratory medicine professionals.

The 2019 Annual Meeting Organizing Committee—chaired by Jason Park, MD, PhD—is planning another excellent scientific event that also promotes networking, business, and professional opportunities.
