2020 APHL NBS Symposium is Canceled​​

Due to the ongoing public health emergency, we regret to inform you that the in-person 2020 APHL Newborn Screening (NBS) Symposium has been canceled. This decision was made after much deliberation with the planning committee, as we want to remain respectful of and cognizant toward the public health priorities at this time to support the pandemic response and to ensure the health and safety of our meeting attendees, members and staff. We remain grateful for your ongoing efforts to sustain newborn screening in light of current events and your work to protect the health of the most vulnerable amongst our population.​

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit an abstract. At this time, the planning committee is exploring alternative ways to share the information that would have been featured during the 2020 APHL NBS Symposium. More information will be shared in the coming weeks with the selected presenters, exhibitors and meeting participants regarding how the meeting content will be shared and opportunities for virtual networking and collaboration.

We regret any inconvenience changes to our events may cause, and thank you for your understanding and continued support as we respond to the COVID–19 pandemic. If you have questions regarding the Symposium, please contact Terry Reamer, senior specialist, Meetings, at terry.reamer@aphl.o​rg
