The American Transplant Congress provides the opportunity for attendees to attend independent symposia financially supported by the pharmaceutical industry during their time at the meeting. The symposia will take place on Sunday, May 2, Monday, May 3, and Tuesday May 4.
Each symposia organizer has made a financial contribution in support of the education mission of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons and the American Society of Transplantation. This support allows symposia organizers access to the ATC attendees before the meting by way of mail promotions and in on site promotion. This support is gratefully acknowledged. This acknowledgement, however, does not constitute an endorsement of any product nor ATC oversight or endorsement of the content of the program. These programs are not affiliated with the ATC, ASTS or AST.
