The New York State Society of Anesthesiologists, Inc.

PGA78 Supporter Program

The PostGraduate Assembly in Anesthesiology (PGA) is a four-day event, sponsored by the NYSSA that takes place each December in New York City. The PGA attracts upwards of 4,000 attendees and is a global platform for networking and presenting anesthesia’s latest science and technologies.

Becoming a PGA78 Supporter offers a four-month opportunity to promote your company to PGA attendees and NYSSA members leading up to, during, and following the PGA meeting. This sponsorship program is an impactful tool to separate yourself from the competition. Only six Supporters are accepted annually.
