Anatomists, wannabe anatomists and all those in possession of anatomy:
Our hearts go out to your limbic systems to get your gluteal complexes to Denver this July.
We are delighted to be hosting the 30th Annual Scientific Session of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists, July 9-13 and would like to have you and your family here with us. We want to go the extra mile for you – as you may have to go one – to get to us.
Plan to come early and stay late to enjoy the outdoor Colorado lifestyle – home of the healthiest and least obese human specimens in the US (by some account on some particular day). In the interest of maximizing professional productivity and accommodating social diversity, we have pre-planned a minimal number of formal events and stand ready to facilitate spontaneous small group activities promoting muscular development, special sensory stimulation and/or gustatory satisfaction.
On Saturday, July 13, 2013 plan to climb one of Colorado’s 54 “Fourteeners” OR join us in this 30th year of the ACCA to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the National Library of Medicine’s tribute to Anatomy as the Foundation of Medicine – The Visible Human. Plan to reach a summit of your career development by attending the Saturday workshop covering the Foundations of Modern Human Anatomy. Witness the breathtaking anatomical beauty of a freshly cut cross-section of a specimen bathed in 55 gallons of absolute ethanol. Astound your peers (and yourself) with your anatomical knowledge as we march through 50μ spaced cross-sections and identify structures, boundaries, relationships and the controversy that is bound to accompany them. Leave with the opportunity to continue this process and make virtual anatomy a reality in our collective quest to communicate the beauty, function and structure of the human body – to the world.
The quality of the meeting depends on you – your comfort and satisfaction depends on us. We personally guarantee terrific weather, national budget resolution, higher taxes and a panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains. We look forward to facilitating your visit to our State, our Cities (Denver and Aurora), our campus (Anschutz Medical), our Schools (Graduate, Medical, Dental Medical, Pharmacy, Nursing and Public Health) our Department (Cell and Developmental Biology) and the Center for Human Simulation. We need your assistance in delivering what you want – let us know through e-mail or a phone call - what you would like to do when you are here.
The Rockies are NOT in town, the Aspen Music Festival is ongoing, golf abounds in the city, the foothills and the mountains. We can facilitate recreational or serious biking. Runners, joggers and walkers have opportunities galore. We can help with visiting the mountains, rafting the rapids, scaling the peaks or just gazing and grazing.
Hope to see you here this summer.
