At the ASSH Annual Meeting
Each year, the Volunteer Service Committee (VSC) holds a luncheon at the ASSH Annual Meeting. The luncheon provides members with an opportunity to renew friendships and exchange experiences and plans. Central to the luncheon is an invited speaker. Past inspiring speakers have included Jose Monsivais, MD, Jon Kolkin, MD, Paul Brand, MD and Vincent R. Hentz, MD.
ASSH Volunteer of the Year Award
During the ASSH Annual Meeting, at the Volunteer Service Luncheon, the ASSH Volunteer of the Year is announced, an honor awarded by the VSC. The award is officially presented at the Scientific Session.
