CANCELLED: Spring Meeting

Out of an abundance of caution, and out of respect for our membership and speakers, the NEACSM has decided to cancel the Spring Conference scheduled for Friday, March 27th. Our leadership has taken into consideration recommendations for best practices in keeping individuals healthy and minimizing the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). In light of multiple travel bans recently put in place by healthcare and university systems, as well as the concerns of our constituents, we decided to make the difficult decision to cancel this spring programming event. We will refund all pre-registration fees in their entirety.
