ASID had a strong presence at NeoCon this year and we’re glad you stopped by to be a part of it. Press conferences, new partnerships, and exciting programming were all part of the experience, and our theme of health and wellness was highly visible to all who visited our booth.

The ASID Booth
Our booth included graphics and activities to support physical, mental, and social health, including a Silent Disco, where participants got to dance the day away while working on their cardio! Staff were on hand to meet with visitors and share the many accomplishments of the Society, and our plans for a dynamic future.
