Greetings from Birmingham! The home office is abuzz in preparation for the Annual Scientific Assembly taking place October 29-31 at the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort in Destin, Florida.

If you’ve never been… wait… what?

Sandestin's Baytowne Wharf is beautiful in the fall. Cool breezes gently blowing in over the bay, together with the music, seafood, fireworks, and a truly relaxing atmosphere, make the Wharf area an ideal family friendly beach location (without the sand). Add to that SMA’s Physicians-in-Training abstract competition and a diverse lineup of lectures and premier speakers, and this year’s Assembly is certainly an event you don’t want to miss.

Topics include.

  • Sickle Cell Disease: Pathophysiologic Concepts/Expert Guidelines for Improved Outcomes

  • Disaster Planning and Response Strategies from the Pediatric Perspective
  • Ethical Challenges in the Care of Patients with Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias
