The 2022 ADSA Annual Meeting will be hybrid for those of you who are unable to travel to Kansas City.
For the virtual portion of the hybrid meeting, starting Monday, June 13, you are able to log in to the meeting app, peruse the pre-recorded virtual presentations along with live-streamed symposia and roundtables, leave comments and questions for presenters, and familiarize yourself with the virtual content. On Friday, June 24, all meeting attendees will be able to log in to the meeting platform or meeting app for live discussion sessions on the virtual-only scientific programming.
TIPS FOR NAVIGATING THE SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM
We have nearly 1,100 abstracts this year, which you will be able to access through pre-recorded or live-streamed sessions on the 2022 ADSA Meeting Virtual Platform. That's a lot of virtual dairy science! We have created several tools to help you see, hear, and talk about all of that science.
Once registered for the meeting, you will use your ADSA username and password to access the meeting virtual platform. If you have forgotten your username or password, visit adsa.org/forgot to look up or reset your credentials.
