APA Goes 'Green,' Covers Diversity Issues

"As always, it is fantastic to be back at APA, attending great sessions and courses, visiting with long-time friends from distant places, and meeting/mentoring medical students and residents. APA continues its strong work on diversity issues and the APA/SAMSA Minority fellow workshop "Disability or Difference? The Cultural and Clinical Needs of Deaf Patients" was well received. It highlights how at this meeting, the synergy between young members, who are passionate and inquisitive, can create stimulating workshops with mentors and APA members in the audience guiding them along the way.

In addition, it is wonderful to see that APA has been moving forward with its adoption of technology and going 'green'. Fewer booklets and materials are printed, and with more content going digital, APA is on track for the future where attendees can create an 'avatar' and browse at the meeting in a hybrid virtual and real world, attending sessions as well as mingling with those who are able to attend in person.

I look forward to each APA, and continue to be in awe of the amazing content created by its members and fashioned into 'curriculum tracks' by the scientific program committee."

John Luo, M.D.
