The three-day Virtual Convention provided PAMS with the opportunity to inform PAMS members, and reach out to the medical community through the Scientific Program webinars.

We had the honor of having the Peruvian Ambassador to the United States, Mr. Hugo de Zela, as our guest speaker during the General Assembly of Members.  PAMS president, Dr. Ronald Mera, presented an overview of the programs during 2019-2020.
