Due to the increasing threat of COVID-19, the Board of Regents has decided to cancel our annual conference scheduled for May 14 – 17 in Denver, Colorado.

The American College of Preventive Medicine’s highest priority is to protect the health of individuals, families, and communities. Due to the increasing threat of COVID-19, the Board of Regents has decided to cancel our annual conference scheduled for May 14 – 17 in Denver, Colorado.

While this is an extraordinarily difficult decision, it is the right thing to do to protect the health and well-being of our members, faculty, staff and partners. The leadership of ACPM recognizes the important role preventive medicine physicians are playing in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are proud of their efforts and will do our part to help the serious containment efforts called for by the CDC and other partners in public health. 

In the coming weeks, we will tap into the innovative and resourceful spirit of the specialty to explore new options to deliver the high-quality professional development resources and educational content, and celebrate the many achievements we had planned to recognize in Denver.

We will be communicating specific information in the next several days to those who have registered and planned to support our meeting. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we address the rapidly changing circumstances as well as the safety and well-being of not just our meeting participants and staff, but their families, colleagues, patients and communities.

Thank you for the important work you do to protect the Nation’s health.

Sincerely,
 
Stephanie Zaza, MD, MPH, FACPM
Chair, Board of Regents, American College of Preventive Medicine
