The Reed Nesbit Society Meeting
Reed M. Nesbit Society and Visiting Professor Meeting
September 6-8, 2012
On behalf of the University of Michigan faculty and staff, we look forward to hosting you at the 27th Reed M. Nesbit Society and Visiting Professor Meeting, September 6-8, 2012 in Ann Arbor.
The year’s meeting is a bit different than usual. We are meeting on an earlier time so that we can combine our meeting with the Ann Arbor Health Services Research Symposium 2012. This symposium is the first of its kind in Urologic Health Services Research (HSR). The HSR field is rapid evolving and growing area of academic and clinical importance because the findings influence how patients, practitioners, payers and policy makers better understand the state of urologic care delivery and how it can be improved. Please note that this year’s fused meeting will begin on Thursday morning and run through the end of Friday. The speakers and presenters are drawn from the nation’s experts in the field. Please use this link to learn more details about the combined meeting and to access registration information: http://www.aahsr2012.org/.
Because of the combined meeting the Nesbit Society program will be only one half day, occurring on Friday afternoon, Sept. 7, 2012. We have assembled an excellent group of talks to complement the HSR symposium. We’ll address the current controversies over PSA screening, the new UTI guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the practicalities of offering specialty care to isolated communities – isolated by geography and resources. The annual Nesbit Society Reunion Dinner will be folded into the Reception Dinner for the symposium. This will occur on Thursday night, Sept. 6, 2012 at the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA). For Saturday, September 8, 2012 we were again fortunate to have the new tailgate location closer to the stadium, which we are excited about. We hope for a perfect ending to the weekend with a Michigan victory over the Falcons of the Air Force Academy.
