    Hi All,

    I hope you're all doing well. As I wrote a few days ago, the final decision about the AOM Annual Meeting will be made no later than May 7th. We're all certainly enthusiastic about the exciting program for 2020. However, we're also engaged in contingency planning regarding what we can and might want to offer virtually if needed. We are also considering new options which may be especially helpful without taxing our already overtaxed volunteers. If you have any ideas for what we should be doing (i.e., new ideas or thoughts) or what we should retain if we're forced to go virtual, please feel free to email me directly (timothy.j.vogus@vanderbilt.edu).

    Please feel free to share any resources that have been helpful to you at this time (articles, books, podcasts, videos, etc.). Please share your thoughts on our AOM Connect HCM Community where all our members can see. Or feel free to email and I'll compile and share. I know that D-Nice's DJ sets on Instagram Live (@dnice on instagram), DJ battles (DJ Premier vs. RZA tonight on Instagram Live), K. Flay's live shows (@kflay on Instagram), and Sterling K. Brown's YouTube workout (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVr9fU2Kgjs&t=6s) have helped me.

    Be well.

    I'm glad to know I'm not the only one in DJ DNice's Club Quarantine. It has been a game changer for me.
