    AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium

    AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium is the 40th anniversary of the Symposium. We want this year to be a homecoming that energizes our new and longtime members, welcomes attendees who haven’t visited the meeting in a few years; and attracts first time attendees to the incredible informatics community AMIA represents.

AMIA 2016: Kids Camp Licensed Childcare Services

To support our members and their families a licensed childcare service provider will be onsite during the AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium. The Kids Camp Licensed Childcare Services are available November 13 -16.

Children participate in age-appropriate activities including arts and crafts projects, active games and more in a safe, nurturing environment.
The AMIA community prospers through the success of members who are supported and empowered to reach their career goals. The service supports members balancing childcare needs while pursuing professional development during the meeting. 

The Women in AMIA task force was instrumental in bringing forward this new service for members and attendees.
