Annual Meeting

March 18-20, 2020 (not .com)


Message from the President (February 2020): 

Dear DRS members, colleagues, and guests

I am writing to invite you to the 28th Annual Meeting of the Dysphagia Research Society coming in less than 1 month from now!  We will meet in Puerto Rico, near San Juan, the capitol of Puerto Rico.  While there are many great reasons to attend, I would like to share two of the most important.

First, the program is amazing - we have 63 invited speakers from 14 different countries, disseminating their expertise in many, many different areas.  In the scientific sessions, we have 50 oral presentations. and 111 posters presented by colleagues who have been awarded the opportunity to speak and share their research.  You will go away from the meeting with a huge fund of new knowledge, I promise!

Second, our venue is absolutely breathtaking.  The Caribe Hilton is on the ocean, with 3 pools and the saltwater waiting for you to enjoy.  We will have a reception each night and when the conference ends on Friday, you will have the rest of the day and weekend to partake of many possible events, from sailing, to riding through a rain forest, to simply lying in the sun in 80 degree weather.

Over the next week, you will hear more about the conference from the Program Planning Committee who organized the meeting and from our committee chairs who will tell you more about programs for students, international participants, and others.

If you haven’t RSVP’d yet, there is still time -----and if the Hilton is full, there are nearby hotels with rooms available.  We want to welcome everyone -   don’t miss out!  I am looking forward to meeting you all. Click here to navigate to attendee registration.
