After careful consideration, the West Virginia Oncology Society has made the decision to cancel its 2020 Spring Conference, scheduled for Friday, March 27, in Roanoke, West Virginia.
Our decision was based upon updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as state and local governments. And in the last week, the number of travel advisories and restrictions being placed on health care providers, hospitals and institutions, and industry partners has quickly grown.
The health and well-being of our attendees, exhibitors, faculty, and staff is our top priority—as is the safety of your patients. With an ever-increasing number of cancer care providers on the front lines of preparing and reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak, we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to cancel the meeting.
Please remember to cancel your travel and hotel reservations. Updates and new information will be posted to our website as available, and we will contact you via email once a new conference date has been confirmed.
WVOS is here for its members and we will not waver in our commitment to provide the resources, education, and support you need to deliver the best care for your patients.
The Association of Community Cancer Centers has developed a COVID-19 Resource Center to help members of the multidisciplinary care team better understand and prepare for the new challenges of treating patients with cancer during the coronavirus.
WVOS members also have access to a robust listserv where you can share information, processes, and resources that your organization has developed in response to COVID-19 with peers. Please share how your program or practice is experiencing an impact on supplies, scheduling, staffing, and other areas
