In 2019, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) were selected by an IAMM review
committee for inclusion at the conference. Each leader was
charged with assembling topic experts from different disciplines and
continents. These groups met virtually throughout the year to develop
outcomes that included research proposals, educational programs, white
papers, and clinical practice guidelines.

The results of these SIGs will now be presented in the IAMM SIG Summer
Webinar Series.

All webinars take place at 14:00 Eastern Time USA in June and July, 2020
and will be free to IAMM members and IAMM 2020 Online Conference
registrants.
