The WAOPS Spring Conference was held on May 5-6, 2023 at the Tundra Lodge Resort Waterpark in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  The conference included two full days of CME content on a variety of topics with speakers from all over Wisconsin and Minnesota. WAOPS held their first ever Resident Poster Session and attendees enjoyed having Residents attend the event and discuss their research. Thank you to our CME Committee for another successful educational event, and to all of our attendees and exhibitors for their support! We hope to see you in November at the Kalahari Resort!
