2023 Annual Meeting Recap

The Successes of the 2023 ACAAM Annual Meeting

More than 130 attendees took part in ACAAM’s first in-person Annual Meeting before 2020, and the event was outstanding!

Event Kickoff Draws Rave Reviews
Kicking off the event, Drs. Ekene Ojukwu from the University of California, San Francisco, and Kenny Morford from Yale University, led attendees on an exploration of Visual Thinking Strategies, a teaching approach using art and humanities to foster open discussions, enable individual reflection, share perspectives, and recognize and challenge biases. Attendees participated in small group exercises to discuss art and engaged in report-outs with their colleagues. Many attendees had never participated in an exercise like this and said they planned to take it back to their institutions.
