  • ID Bug Bowl – $15,000

Three teams of local residency and fellowship programs are invited to participate in the IDWeek Infectious Diseases Quiz Bowl, (a 90-minute jeopardy-style live quiz show) at Saturday, October 6.  Each team will consist of four members; two current ID Fellows, and two residents.  Questions will cover such subjects as recent infectious diseases news in the media, new findings in peer-reviewed publications, history of infectious diseases, and the occasional esoterica. No CME/CPE will be offered during this session, so industry can support for this well attended event.

Exclusive support includes a black and white corporate logo in the Final Program, recognition before and during the event, signage throughout IDWeek, bronze supporter status, and company recognition with the future ID physicians, current practitioners, and leadership.

  • Recognition in the Digital Library – $50,000
