Conflict of Interest Disclosure


In compliance with CME requirements, all speakers are requested to display as a 2nd slide disclosing financial conflicts of interest at the beginning of their presentation for at least 30 seconds to allow enough time for the audience to review and digest the information. If you have nothing to disclose, this slide must be included indicating “nothing to disclose”. Please disclose verbally (including if nothing to disclose) at the start of your presentation.

Where the value is potential, the percentage of the total stock options should be declared.
