The 24th ANPA National Convention and Scientific Assembly recently held in Dallas, TX , introduced innovative “Hot Topics” sessions where ANPA members took turns to expound on some of the most topical and controversial subjects in medicine.
I was wowed by the depth and breadth of expertise on display, and I should have learned a lot. But I was too preoccupied worrying about speakers going over their times that all I took away were the following.
Aham Onyike: you might be the only orthopod that knows words like “propinquity”
Ngozi Osuagwu: does one have to give up Nkwobi to live in a blue zone? Asking for a friend.
Oby Ogbata: take a bow for this lady – gave a flawless presentation even after I loaded the wrong version of her slides
Ify Osunkwo: I’m never prescribing opioids again without feeling guilty
Chi Chi Anyaogu: Ify’s sister, Ify’s sister (let’s make this trend)
Obi Ekwenna: tufiakwa, getting a Hep C- infected transplant shall never be my portion….
Kwavi Agbeyegbe: could you teach everyone else how to make simple, bold, easy to read slides?
Kingsley Agbeyegbe: your next talk should be “Transition from Clinical Practice: Livin’ la Vida Loca”
Marco Onuigbo: all I wanna know is how can I fix baby hernias in Naija through telemedicine?
Charles Dike: dude, what other presidential psych malady do you have up your sleeves for our silver jubilee convention? (you might get more than 15 minutes..)
Stanley Okoro: you have your own paid social media director for real?
Phillip Igbinadolor: do they make CPAP masks that won’t give the kids nightmares?
Charmaine Emelife: you gave a coffee lecture made on a coffee bean PowerPoint template; hmm, you no hear one, Madam President…
