I heard a lot of good lines at the AUA this year, including some with a unique Boston accent, but the best belongs to a friend from medical school.
It was 5:30 Sunday morning and I was sitting in the airport with a cup of coffee when I heard a familiar voice. Turning, I heard him say, “I guess I’m not the only person leaving early for Mother’s Day.” Seriously, I don’t know if I need to contact the AUA, but someone needs to make sure this conference is not on Mother’s Day weekend again.
OK, so the scheduling wasn’t great, but how was the content of the conference? First, let me report on my experiment to attend most of the conference virtually. Result? Not that bad, all of the plenary sessions were readily posted on the AUA website. The videos were crisp and easy to watch. Well done.
On the other hand, I was less impressed with the On-Demand Course Pass. I knew going in to the conference that I would not be able to attend most of these courses and, as I find them incredibly useful, I purchased this pass so I could watch them at home. Unfortunately, when I wrote this over a week after the conference, the website still read, "Coming Soon!" and my editor (who does a great job) says I have a deadline. I'll get back to everyone during the next blog about my experience with the On-Demand Course Pass.
