Happy New Year! The 2015 Annual Meeting is fast approaching! I am certainly looking forward to some warmth and sun in a few weeks after all of this winter weather.

If you have an interest in serving on the 2015-16 YFSF Committee, feel to speak to me or any other current committee member about applying to serve on the YFSF Committee. The YFSF Committee is a great way to network and become more involved with AAFS.

The YFSF Committee looks forward to seeing everyone in Orlando!
