Spring Meeting is now rescheduled for the summer
Members and residents/fellows, thank you for your abstract submissions. Although we are eager to learn from your research, we are obliged to cancel the meeting due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The ASCRS conference has now also been canceled.
We know our members can be called up to be on the front lines of this pandemic at any time, if not already there. Please keep safe, colleagues.
