2020 AAOM Annual Conference Canceled Due to COVID-19 

Updated: March 20, 2020

Dear AAOM Supporters,

The AAOM Board of Trustees has made the difficult decision that, due to unanticipated circumstances beyond its control, we must cancel the AAOM Annual Conference scheduled in Orlando, Florida, April 29 - May 2, 2020.

The Board of Trustees reached this decision only after concluding it would be impossible to hold the conference as planned. The coronavirus continues to spread in Florida (and elsewhere), and the number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase. The Board of Trustee’s decision reflects its determination that proceeding with the conference under these circumstances could endanger the health and well-being of conference participants.
