In order to best protect the health and safety of our community, we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 MedStar Health-Georgetown University Research Symposium and Colloquium for Educators in the Health Professions. The event was scheduled for Monday, April 6.
We understand the time it takes to ready an abstract for submission and we thank all of you who shared your research with us. We are currently evaluating options for sharing the great research from across our community and timing to reschedule the event.
Our collective health is critical and ensures we can continue serving the needs of our patients and communities.
