From HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau - Greetings Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Colleagues,
NRWC is Officially Going Virtual
We would like to give you an update on the 2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care and Treatment (NRWC). In light of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the NRWC is officially going virtual! The conference dates will remain August 11-14, 2020, but the times will be adjusted to accommodate different time zones. Registered participants are still encouraged to attend the full length of the conference, however the virtual platform would allow for more flexibility.
The health, well-being, and safety of all of our attendees is the top priority for HAB leadership. While there is not yet sufficient data on whether people with HIV are more susceptible or more likely to develop severe disease, we must take every precaution to reduce any potential risk to the vulnerable population the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program serves.
We know many of the registered attendees and speakers are working on the front lines of the COVID-19 response around the world. This virtual format will allow those on the front line to still have an opportunity to attend the conference and not take them away from the communities they are working hard to serve.
Hotel Reservations Auto Cancelled for You
Please note, all Marriott Marquis Washington, DC hotel reservations will be cancelled on behalf of registered attendees. There is no need to contact the hotel to request a reservation cancellation.
