Dear STFM Colleagues,
Thank you for the outpouring of support as STFM navigates the current and potential impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). As family medicine colleagues prepare for and treat a growing number of COVID-19 patients, we will gain knowledge and insight that will benefit our specialty, patients, and entire healthcare system long into the future. STFM will continue to support all members with resources, conferences, and programs as we work through this new challenge together.
After weighing various options, the STFM Board of Directors agreed to postpone the May 2-6 STFM Annual Spring Conference. We are pleased to announce that the conference will be rescheduled for later this summer. We will share those new dates once we have confirmed a new contract with the hotel.
We’ll have more details for you early next week about cancelling your hotel reservation and how we'll handle your registration refund. Until we announce new dates, we suggest that you wait to cancel your flights. If the new conference dates work with your schedule, you may be able to exchange your plane ticket, rather than incur cancellation fees.
Thank you for your patience. We'll be in touch early next week with more details.
