Swarm Interactive CEO Don Wittekind and CCO R. Scott Horner will be exhibiting again this year at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meeting in Chicago.

AAOS is always a great opportunity for us to get feedback from our customers, so if you are attending we invite you to stop by and see us at booth 5017. We recently launched ViewMedica 7 and we would be happy to show you all the new features.

Finally, if you have a web site with us - or want to talk about one - we are available to give you a tour of our popular QuickSite program and discuss ways to better promote your practice.

Don and Scott can be reached throughout the show by calling 954-873-2434.
