Annual Conference News and Education

The COVID19 pandemic has an immense global impact and has claimed many casualties. Our deepest condolences go out to the people who have lost a loved one and to the people who have suffered during this pandemic.

To protect people’s health and wellbeing, this year we will have to cancel the in-person conference scheduled for August in Washington DC and instead organize a virtual meeting for 2020. We are very grateful for all of the work done by Drs. Melissa Perry, Carlos Santos-Burgoa, and Pauline Mendola, as well as George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health for organizing and launching this year’s annual conference. We will build on that work to turn it towards the virtual meeting, and we are all committed to making this new format a resounding success.

We will be sending announcements and new timelines to keep you informed. 

In the meantime, we count on you to provide the support and commitment to make the virtual conference happen. We can do this together (while keeping two meters apart). Read More
