2023 LAMPHHS Annual Meeting (Ann Arbor, Michigan)

We are very excited to host the 2023 Annual Meeting in Ann Arbor, Michigan on May 10 & 11. All sessions will be offered both virtually and in-person.

2023 LAMPHHS Annual Meeting Program

Rooms have been reserved for LAMPHHS and AAHM at the Kensington Hotel. The conference room rate is $149 with a 6% Michigan sales tax and a 5% occupancy tax. Parking is free of charge. The conference rate is available Tuesday through Sunday, May 9-15. Reservations need to be made by phone: (866) 446-1329, and you must mention AAHM to obtain the conference rate. The cut-off for reserving rooms at the conference room rate is April 12.

Meeting Location
The meeting sessions will take place at the Michigan League and the School of Dentistry (home of the Sindecuse Museum) and located within the University of Michigan’s central campus.  The hotel is located just 3 miles from campus and in an effort to cut our carbon footprint and parking needs, we will be matching up potential carpooling volunteers with one those that need rides. Uber vouchers may be offered to fill in the gaps.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided for the meeting attendees on Thursday. The meeting will be offered hybrid style and there is no limit on the number of in-person and virtual attendees that we can accommodate.

The Wednesday evening dinner reception will be held at Zingerman’s Roadhouse. While the deli remains a pilgrimage spot for almost all Ann Arbor visitors, the Roadhouse, which has been open for 20 years, has become the favorite among locals for its regional American classics. Please note this dinner is limited to 60 people.

Tours before and after the meeting include:
Self-guided visits to the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum
Combination tours of special collections at the Hatcher Graduate Library and the William Clements Library. 
Special selection of artworks related to medicine, remedies, and healing, on view at the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
Guided tours of the Sindecuse Museum of Dentistry
Self-guided tours of the Museum of Natural History
Guided tour of the Burton Memorial Tower

We look forward to seeing you in-person and online!
