A speaker/author index begins on page 333. Names of all speakers, presenting authors
and co-authors are listed followed by their session or abstract number(s).
Speaker Conflict of Interest:
Beginning on page 329 is an alphabetical list of invited
session speakers and authors of abstracts who have disclosed the existence of
significant financial interest or other relationships the presenter has with companies or
organizations that may be perceived to bias the presentation. This information allows
the listener/attendee to be fully knowledgeable in evaluating the presentation, and
is required to meet CME and CEU requirements. All speakers will have a conflict of

San Francisco is to wear layers! Fog can roll in at any time, and areas near the water
can feel cool.
