Opening Reception and Posters in the Park 
 
Be sure to attend the Opening Reception and Posters in the Park, Wednesday, Oct. 26 in the Poster Hall, 6 – 7:30 p.m. The wine and cheese reception will feature poster presentations from medical students, residents and fellows that have been specially selected by the respective societies.

Be part of the solution! Attend this special Town Hall meeting, Friday, Oct. 28, at 6 p.m. in the New Orleans Theater, to learn about efforts by IDSA and HIVMA to address ID and HIV workforce challenges. Held in lieu of the traditional IDSA and HIVMA Business Meetings, the Town Hall will be an interactive forum where members can contribute their ideas and voice their concerns. 
 
IDBugBowl 2016 
 
Come match your knowledge of ID trivia with contestants from three New Orleans ID programs! The teams will battle it out to see who comes out on top in the inaugural IDBugBowl. This fun session—which is geared specifically for fellows, residents, and medical students—takes place Saturday, Oct. 29, 10:30 a.m. – noon in Theater C.
 
Satellite Symposia 
 
IDWeek 2016 will play host to a number of affiliated events in New Orleans, including nine accredited satellite symposia that offer CME that is supplemental to credits offered by the official IDWeek program. The IDExpo Hall will also feature a Learning Lounge for attendees to view 45-minute presentations from various exhibiting companies during exhibition hours (10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Thursday-Saturday). Further details for these and all affiliated events will be available in October at www.idweek.org
 
 MOC Pilot at IDWeek 2016  
 
In addition to CME and CPE credit, IDWeek attendees can now earn up to 18.25 maintenance of certification (MOC) points for selected interactive sessions at IDWeek. Download the meeting app to participate in the sessions. Following the sessions, visit the CME/CPE/MOC pavilion or go online after the meeting to complete an evaluation, which requires your American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) number and date of birth. IDSA will report your MOC points to ABIM within one week of the conclusion of IDWeek. Visit the IDWeek website for the list of sessions, the Interactive Program planner and the meeting app for session details, and look for the CME/MOC logo next to session titles in the Final Program book. 
 
Additional MOC points can be earned through participating in pre-meeting workshops, which include the updated Hepatitis C MOC module, along with the Vaccines 2015 and Travel/Tropical Medicine 2015 MOC modules.
