It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Gulf Atlantic Anesthesia Residents Research Conference. The University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) is proud to host the 44th Annual Meeting and we are excited to see the work being done by our colleagues across the Southeast covering all aspects of the specialty of anesthesiology. Our venue, the Beau Rivage Resort, is one of the Gulf Coast’s finest resorts. I know this will be a memorable meeting, and I look forward to meeting you. It will be one of the finest conferences of 2018!
