ABSTRACT

18th DANAM Conference – POSTPONED (DANAM2020)
November 2020 (Boston, Massachusetts)

FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
By decision of the DANAM Executive Committee that, due to the ongoing unknowns concerning COVID-19, it will not be prudent to meet in person in November this year, the 2020 Conference will be POSTPONED until November 2021. It is expected that the panels planned for 2020 will take place at that Conference in San Antonio.
We wish everyone good health and safety during this trying time.
