Cancellation of the CUGH 2020 Conference & Satellite Sessions

Dear Colleague,
It is with deep regret that we must inform you that we are cancelling our annual conference and all related activities around CUGH 2020, April 17 to the 20th in Washington, DC. Holding a big gathering like our annual meeting, given the rapidly expanding Covid19 pandemic, could risk the health and welfare of you, the other registrants and the public. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this has caused you, but we will always put public safety as our top priority. We wanted to inform you as soon as possible to give you time to cancel your travel arrangements and consider the options we would like to present to you regarding your sponsorship of the conference and registration.
