As a provider accredited by the ACCME, AMIA requires that everyone who is in a position to control the content of an educational activity disclose all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest for 12 months prior to the educational activity.

The ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CE activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.

Disclosures will be posted here and in the meeting app in advance of the meeting.
