It is our pleasure to formally welcome you to the Joint Meeting of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons (AAPS) and the Plastic Surgery Research Council (PSRC), which will be held at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in New York City on May 19 to 22, 2016. This meeting is the first time that the AAPS and PSRC have come together for an educational event, and we are excited with what this unique collaboration will provide to the plastic surgery community.

The 2016 Joint Meeting is an opportunity for cross-pollination of ideas and perspectives, as well as networking and socialization between the memberships of the two organizations and colleagues from around the world. We are proud of the work of the Program Chairs, Drs. Michael Neumeister and Howie Levinson, who have integrated the science and research and practical components of plastic surgery into this combined conference. We hope that you will enjoy the Joint Meeting as much as we have enjoyed our collaborative efforts in creating it.

Sincerely yours,

Michael L. Bentz, MD, President AAPS

Babak J. Mehrara, MD, Chair PSRC
