**IMPORTANT UPDATE** NCODA SPRING FORUM 2020

NCODA Spring Forum 2020 Transitions to Virtual E-Meeting

March 10, 2020 3pm Eastern

To our valued members and corporate partners,

In alignment with our Guiding Values, 1) Patient-Centered and 2) Always Collaborative, NCODA is taking all necessary precautions in order to provide our members and corporate partners a value-added experience, while remaining vigilant concerning the health and safety concerns surrounding the coronavirus outbreak.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, members, exhibitors, and meeting faculty. We have a moral and professional obligation to do what we can individually and collectively to minimize the spread of this outbreak. It’s about keeping oncology patients safe. They are immunocompromised and many have comorbidities; our responsibility is to abide by the policies and procedures created to ensure the safety of patients.

Therefore, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 NCODA Spring Forum in Dallas, Texas (March 18-20). We understand that our meetings provide members and partners with updates and sharing of best practices, and we realize participants get firsthand information that they can use to enhance care at their respective practices.

When important meetings, like the NCODA Spring Forum, get canceled it’s a major disruption in dissemination of vital information. Keeping this in mind, NCODA will be converting the Spring Forum into an e-meeting format that will take place on Thursday, March 19th from 8am – 6pm eastern. All registered participants will be contacted via email with the necessary e-meeting sign-in details.

NCODA is committed to fulfilling our Mission of disseminating critical oncology information. We intend to provide a rich alternative meeting and learning experience for the oncology community. We will provide more information about cancellation logistics, including registration, hotel, and flight accommodations, in the near future. Please stay tuned for more information. See the full press release here.

Please email Kristen Ray (kristen.ray@ncoda.org) with any questions.
