Wyoming Medical Society’s annual meeting will take place on Saturday,
January 20, beginning at 7:00 am at Snow King Resort. Focused on the theme
of the “Future of Medicine,” the talks, hands-on activities,

Participants can learn about and experience medical robotics, remote physician
services, and the IBM Watson artificial intelligence medical program.
At an interactive session, participants will see augmented reality systems,
robotic physician assistants, wireless ultrasound, robotic surgical systems,
and remote patient assistant devices.
“As one of the sponsors of this program, we encourage anyone with
