2020 RI Chapter Scientific Meeting

Unfortunately, we will have to postpone our Annual Chapter Meeting slated for next Wednesday, March 18 due to:
1) Brown is not allowing any meetings with >100 attendees to hold meetings at the school; and
2) it just seems safe and prudent to postpone at this time due to concerns related to coronavirus/COVID-19. 

As soon as we have a date for rescheduling we will let everyone know. Please keep your slides, your posters, and any other hard work that has already been completed so that when the time comes it can be used!

We are reaching out to the medical school to find a time that would work to reschedule.  We will then check with the speakers and as soon as we know, we will let you all know.

I was looking forward to seeing you all at the meeting.  Hopefully in the near future! I will also give updates related to National ACP if I receive them first.

Thanks so much for your understanding.
