Important message regarding the 76th Annual Clinical and Scientific Conference
The health and safety of our members and their patients are of paramount importance to the SOGC. For this reason we are placing our priority on getting resources to you to help you in your care of your patients, yourselves, your families and your communities. Please keep our website at hand as new resources will be added as they become available.
Plans for this year’s ACSC have been underway for a while now and we were more than excited to share the lineup of amazing content that was planned. It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to cancel the in-person portion of the 76th Annual Clinical Scientific Conference (ACSC) that was to be held in Ottawa from June 9 to June 12, 2020.
With the global spread of COVID-19 and the increasing health and safety measures being put in place by all levels of government, the SOGC could not proceed with the ACSC. However, the SOGC remains committed to our members and stakeholders that is why we are looking at all other options including a virtual meeting. Please stay tuned to all communications channels for further information.
I am sure that you share in our disappointment with this news, as our annual meeting is a great way to stay up to date with the latest research and science, meet up with long-time friends, and participate in cutting edge educational programming. Remember this is not goodbye but a “see you soon”.
We are extremely grateful to you, our members, for your on-going support and your continued belief in the value that the SOGC provides. These are truly extraordinary times and we want to wish you all the best and good health.
