Please be informed that, unless otherwise noted, hosts from prior AOD events
are happy to be contacted and share their opinions of the program.
AOD has given nearly 100 workshops to date. How do you know these are the "best airway CME?" As much as we would like you to believe us, the proof is in the opinions of past attendees. Below you will find email addresses for many of these clinicians. But perhaps more convincing is the number of times we have been asked to repeat the workshop for the same practice group:
Society for Airway Management Annual Meeting
Jefferson Big Sky Anesthesia Conference
American Association of Nurse Anesthetists
North Dakota ANA
Rose Medical Center, Denver, CO
South Dakota ANA
