As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our members and communities, and after thoughtful and data-driven deliberations, the AzAAP Board of Directors and CME Committee have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone until further notice the in-person 43rd Annual Pediatrics in the Red Rocks Conference set to take place June 26-28, 2020.
We do not make this decision lightly and have deferred as long as possible in the hopes this outcome could be avoided, but it is our responsibility to protect the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, and staff. By communicating this decision to you, we hope to free up your time to focus on the safety and well-being of your patients, families and workforce. In the meantime, we continue to research and explore other opportunities to bring this conference and other quality continuing medical education to you through virtual or alternate formats when the timing is right.
We are grateful for your support during this moment when you, your peers, and the broader health community are focused on caring for patients affected by the pandemic, on keeping up with rapidly evolving medical information, and on doing all you can to prevent the spread of infection, and we at AzAAP want you to know that we applaud and support you and all your commitment and dedication.
We continue to work with the media, Governor's office, and Department of Health to promote the importance of well child care and create materials to encourage the community to visit their pediatrician during this time.
If you have questions or concerns about the Pediatrics in the Red Rocks conference, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
With our best regards,
AzAAP Board of Directors and CME Committ
