Emergency Telephone Messages - In case of emergency, messages may be left during registration hours by calling (786) 276-4500 The emergency contact phone will be answered only during posted registration hours.

JSM Program - Make sure you explore the online Program for the most up-to-date session and abstract information. Make the most of your time at JSM this year by visiting the online program to build your own virtual program using the "Add to My Program" option. When you have your program set, print it out and you will have everything you need to maximize your time at JSM. Due to the ever changing nature of our program, we strongly encourage you to access schedule information online as it is always the most current. As any printed information is almost immediately out of date, and in our continued effort to conserve resources, we will not produce an abstract book or CD this year.

Recycling at JSM

Finally, place the JSM badges and badge holders in one of the designated bins for recycling in the registration area.
