Each Annual Meeting speaker has been asked to disclose if he or she, or a member of their immediate family, has a financial interest or other relationship with a commercial company or institution, which relates directly or indirectly to the subject of his or her presentation.
An indication of the participant’s disclosure will appear online after his or her name, as well as the commercial company or institution that provided the support. If the participant discloses he or she does not have any financial interests or commitments, this information will also be noted. The AOA does not view the existence of these disclosed interests or commitments as necessarily implying bias or decreasing the value of the author’s participation in the Annual Meeting. An indication of the participant’s disclosure will appear on the AOA’s website.
