CANCELED: Annual Conference: MedBiquitous 2020

MedBiquitous 2020 - A Shared Vision for the Future

Over the last several weeks, the AAMC has continued to actively monitor developments related to coronavirus, including engaging with both federal health officials and our member institutions. After much discussion with AAMC leadership, and with consideration of current CDC social distancing guidelines, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel MedBiquitous 2020 scheduled to take place on June 8-9 in New York, New York.

The Information Technology in Academic Medicine Conference, sponsored by the Group on Information Resources (GIR), that was scheduled to take place June 9-12 has also been canceled. 

On behalf of the AAMC and the MedBiquitous interim Steering Committee, I would like to offer our sincere thanks to the planning committee, Panos Bamidis, Tao Le, JB McGee, Robin Rivest and Tim Willett, for the time and effort they put into planning this year’s conference.  They put together what would have been a fantastic conference for the MedBiquitous community.

At this time, we are not planning to reschedule this meeting, virtually or in-person. In the coming weeks we will explore options for sharing critical information and facilitating key conversations with the MedBiquitous community. Please continue to follow the MedBiquitous Community Connection newsletter for more information.
