Updated: June 22, 2022

The health and safety of attendees and participants at the HFSA Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) 2022 at the Gaylord National Harbor in Washington, DC from September 30-October 3 is our highest priority.  As we get closer to the meeting, HFSA will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19, particularly the status of local directives at the Gaylord National Harbor, in Prince George’s County and in the state of Maryland.

Additionally, HFSA will offer a virtual option for those preferring to experience ASM 2022 virtually, though it will not be as robust as the in-person meeting.
