The American Society of Anesthesiologists is conducting
an ASA NEWSLETTER Reader Survey. The survey is easy
to complete and will take approximately 5-10 minutes.
All of your answers will be kept confidential, and
the results will be used to make the publication
even more responsive to your needs and interests.
In appreciation for your taking the time to
complete this survey, we will enter your name
into a drawing to win an iPhone or one of two
$100 American Express gift cards.
Please visit www.asahq.org to take part in the survey.
