Please join us Sunday, Saturday, October 20th from 8 to 10 PM at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center, Kansas City, Missouri. On behalf of the NAME Foundation Board of Trustees, I would like to announce the fourth annual Sunday evening NAME Foundation fundraising event, to be presented in conjunction with the NAME Annual Meeting in Kansas City, MO this coming October. This year's event will be a look back at 9-11, and will NOT be open to the public (see below). The presenter will be our very own Dr. Andrew Baker with his presentation entitled The 9-11 Attack on American Airlines Flight 77 and the Pentagon. Prior to joining the Hennepin County (Minneapolis) Medical Examiner’s Office in 2002, Dr. Baker was a forensic pathologist at the Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner in Washington DC, living and working in the Washington DC area. Following the 9-11 attacks, Dr. Baker was one of the core forensic pathologists and scientists responsible for the identification and autopsy of the victims and perpetrators of the attack on AA77 and the Pentagon. This very personal presentation will open with an overview of how the attack unfolded; take an in-depth view of the mass disaster morgue operation and identification process as they existed in 2001; and close with topics ranging from the results of the Pentagon operation to lessons learned to the long-term effects such an experience has produced.
The event will serve as an outreach fundraiser for the NAME FOUNDATION to help raise scholarship money for Forensic Pathology Fellows, Pathology Residents, and students to attend and make scientific presentations at the NAME Annual Meeting. As such, attendance at this event will be associated with a small donation and requires pre-registration. On-site registration is not guaranteed but if offered will be managed by THE CENTER FOR FORENSIC SCIENCES RESEARCH AND EDUCATION at The Fredric Rieders Family Foundation. Pre-registration will be only via the NAME Foundation Website (here). Ticket donations are $10 for students, and $20 for everyone else. NAME members may wish to opt for a special package deal: with a $50 donation, NAME members will receive a 1 year NAME Foundation Membership and admission to the event.
Note: As indicated above, only persons who have registered for the 2019 NAME Annual Meeting (including vendors) will be allowed to register for this presentation. ALL attendees will be required to wear their meeting name badge and anyone without a badge will not be allowed to enter the presentation room. NAME members may vet another person(s) such as a spouse or significant other who is NOT registered for the NAME meeting by confirming that they are an appropriate audience for the material presented, however no one under the age of 18 will be allowed to attend.
Absolutely NO photography, videography or audio recordings will be permitted as required by the United States Department of Defense. Anyone in violation will be immediately escorted out of the building and their recording device will be confiscated.
Any person purchasing a ticket for this event who does not register for the 2019 NAME Annual Meeting will not receive a refund of their donation.
