AAPD Leadership & Staff want to thank our membership for supporting us as we navigate through these trying times that COVID-19 has presented us. We are overwhelmed with the gratitude that we have been met with from our members. We are remaining optimistic and want more than ever to hold AAPD 2021 in person in Boston next May, however, we want to ensure that we are returning safely and with the proper measures in place. The health and safety of our members, guests, staff, exhibitors and vendors is our top priority at this time. All options are being explored for AAPD 2021 from a hybrid meeting (combination of in-person and virtual) to a fully virtual experience.
At this time, AAPD Leadership, Staff, Local Arrangement Chairs & the Scientific Program Planning Committee are working closely with local Boston CVBs (Convention Visitors Bureau) and other necessary parties to ensure the proper decision is made by following recommendations from the local public health department, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
A decision will be made and information will be released in early 2021. Please continue to check back here for updates.
