The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) is pleased to host this virtual regional meeting, Making Inclusive and Interprofessional Strides. We aim to embrace an overall theme of the diverse and multidisciplinary nature of anatomy and its influences on tools and practices within the other health sciences. These tools and practices include digital technology, clinical procedures, surgical skills, biomechanical research, and interprofessional education. We are excited to invite students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and clinicians to participate in this virtual conference highlighting efforts in education, research, interprofessional interactions, and professional development within the anatomical sciences.
