Welcome from Jami Lucas, AAOA Executive Director/CEO

As medicine evolves, and especially as our members continue to respond to the COVID impact on their practices, AAOA recognizes the need to make access to our corporate partners easy and available on your time.  We developed the Partner Resource Center with this in mind.  The AAOA Partner Resource Center offers a portal to our commercial partner participants (exhibitors, sponsors, and corporate partners), including partner-specific resource rich pages hosted on the AAOA website.

Here you will have access to a variety of text-based and multi-media content that is relevant to you and your practice.

As a new service, we want your feedback.  And, our commercial partners want your feedback.  Let us know what you like, what you want more of, and what is missing.   The more you engage with the Partner Resource Center, the more we can use your feedback to help expand our offerings.

A special welcome from AAOA's Corporate Partner Committee Chairs

As co-chairs of the Corporate Development Committee, we are excited to launch this new initiative.  Medicine and all the aspect of our practices continue to evolve.  AAOA wants to help assure you have access to the latest and greatest.

We see this Resource Center as an expansion on our educational and practice management resources, programs, and tools with the latest on allergy, pharmacotherapy, surgery, practice management, and more offerings to help you easily gain the information and non-CME knowledge you need to help make practice decisions or to help educate your patients on the diagnostic and treatment options you are presenting.

We are excited to host this new Partner Resource Center.
