ABA President’s Address: “Why”
William G. Cioffi, Jr., MD, FACS

Dr. Bill Cioffi reminds us to look for the “Why” in what we do. Our ability to affect positive change is dependent upon keeping our mission in focus. As our healthcare system evolves, we can continue to move the ABA’s mission forward by exhibiting strong leadership, especially in times of crisis and chaos.

Program Chair
Robert Cartotto, MD, FRCS(C)

Dr. Robert Cartotto will provide a brief update on the efforts of the ABA to continue to deliver important burn education in lieu of the 2020 Annual Meeting scheduled to be in Orlando this week.

Keynote Speaker
John O’Leary
What you do matters—now more than ever!

There are thousands of speakers around the world with worthy messages and incredible achievements. How does John O’Leary compare? He doesn’t. John O’Leary is a man who defied death. Because of this experience, John truly lives. And, more importantly, John is masterful at conveying the truth that “no obstacle is insurmountable.” Through emotional storytelling and great humor, John reveals a brighter vision for what is possible in life and business. John is highly sought after because he delivers a “genuine and authentic” message that is truly unmatched.

John’s talk is co-sponsored by Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors. The first 160 people who register and attend the plenary will get a free copy of his new book, “IN AWE”, when it comes out in May.
