We regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s course in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We did not make this decision lightly and had deferred as long as possible in the hopes this outcome could be avoided. Unfortunately, it is now impossible to hold the course in light of guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); public health officials; the State of Emergency in Massachusetts; national and international travel bans; Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital guidelines prohibiting travel and participation at in-person meetings; and most importantly, our responsibility to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our attendees, faculty, exhibitors, sponsors, and staff. We feel that this is the best and only course of action at this time.
We appreciate your understanding of these unusual and unpredictable circumstances, and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
Please note the following:
We appreciate your understanding of these unusual and unpredictable circumstances, and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We look forward to hopefully seeing you next year in Boston at our May 7-9, 2021 course. More information and registration will be available on our course website in the coming months.
