Dear members and friends of IAMA,

Happy New Year to you all and I hope you had a wonderful holiday season with friends and family.

Last year we had 2 fantastic scientific meetings, first on May 20 in New Orleans, followed by AsMA, then the Aviation Health Conference in London, September 26-27.

We are fast approaching our Annual Scientific Meeting on May 4 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Chicago, Illinois.

The title of this year’s meeting is ‘Challenges in Airline Medicine’. The program committee led by Pat Baylis has put together an exciting scientific program that you will be sure find interesting and relatable. Topics range from dealing with eustachian tube dysfunction to effects on crew of violence onboard and drug and alcohol related incidents.  Discuss dealing with pilot fatigue and extending flight duty time.  Learn what is on the forefront of infectious diseases and commercial space travel.  These along with other timely topics will be presented.

Best wishes for 2024 and I really hope to see you in person in Chicago.


Vincent Feuillie
