APA's 2010 Annual Meeting: Big Ideas in the Big Easy
Psychiatric News
Volume 45 Number 13 page 6-6

Few cities make hospitality as much a part of their culture as New Orleans, and about 11,000 psychiatrists and other annual meeting attendees were able to bask in that welcome at APA's annual meeting in May. While world-renowned culinary traditions and the French Quarter's unique architecture and ambience drew big crowds to the Big Easy, the meeting's real bounty was found in the comprehensive scientific program that covered every major area in clinical practice and cutting-edge research, and was spiced up with a few esoteric offerings as well.

The funds came from APA members who responded to a donation program sponsored by APA prior to the meeting. The mission assists homeless individuals by providing meals, clothing, shelter, and literacy and job-skills training. For more annual meeting photos, click here.
