SfRBM 2021 Conference to be Delivered Virtually

After careful consideration and member input, the SfRBM Council has made the decision to move to a completely virtual Annual Conference, to be held November 15-18.

Our reasons for cancelling the in-person component in Savannah, Georgia are two-fold:

  • Health & Safety of Our Members – With COVID cases remaining high and many universities and employers enacting travel restrictions or not recommending travel, we want to keep you and your families safe and healthy, doing our part to stop the spread of COVID and burden on healthcare workers.
  • Quality In-Person Conference Programming – Over the past few weeks, it became apparent that SfRBM would not be able to produce a quality in-person event that our members have come to expect. The survey we recently sent indicated that the vast majority of members were not planning to attend in-person.

Please be patient with us as we work through additional details. We wanted to share this decision with you as soon as possible. We will still have live virtual sessions Monday, November 15 – Thursday, November 18, and the schedule will be similar to the current program.   SfRBM will circulate more information when it is available.
