We have been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving domestic and worldwide pandemic related to COVID-19 during the last several weeks. There is tremendous uncertainty at present regarding what will happen in the coming months.
As of now, plans for Phase II Certifying Examination are being assessed. By May 1, we hope to know whether having the examination in August will be feasible. We are still planning to move forward with the Annual Meeting scheduled for October 31-November 3, 2020 in Chicago.
We continue to track the latest news from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, as well as state and local health organizations regarding this pandemic. We encourage you to stay up to date by visiting the resources listed below.
