#TogetherNASS: Message from NASS President Eeric Truumees, MD

Fellow NASS Members:

For the first time in our organization’s 30+ year history, the North American Spine Society (NASS) held its Annual Meeting entirely virtually a few short weeks ago. During the meeting, I was elected President of the Society for the next year. Following the NASS Twitter account during the meeting, I saw a “hashtag” which I hope stands as the legacy of my term: #TogetherNASS

While there’s no doubt COVID will continue to pose challenges for us all, I’m determined to keep the idea of #TogetherNASS central in my Presidency by encouraging members of all backgrounds and specialties to stand together to support the NASS mission of advancing global spine care.

If you’ve not already, please join me and our fellow members in this #TogetherNASS movement by renewing your membership for 2021 at And as my predecessor Bill Sullivan has previously expressed, I wish you and your loved ones well as we work through this very challenging time for medicine.
