The health and safety of our conference participants is of utmost importance. AHIP continues to monitor the status of the Coronavirus (COVID 19), as well as direction and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The conferences, scheduled for March 18-20, 2020, in Washington, D.C., are proceeding as scheduled at this time.
The CDC has publicly indicated that the health risk of Coronavirus for the general American public is low. AHIP will continue to provide regular updates, based on information from the CDC.
To add to the safety of our attendees, the conference will be a handshake-free meeting.
In addition, we encourage our attendees to follow other safety precautions recommended by the CDC. They include washing hands regularly, covering mouths with an elbow or sleeve when coughing, and following other procedures that help keep you safe from viruses like the flu.
