The AUA has been hard at work looking for innovative ways to create a virtual experience to bring you some of the extraordinary science and education planned for AUA2020. Thanks to the steadfast dedication of our physician and researcher leadership, and collective commitment of our speakers, we will be leveraging the latest technologies to bring some of the best science from AUA2020 right to your computer! All of these programs will be free for AUA Members. Learn more about the exciting education we have planned in the coming weeks and months!
(Update: March 13, 2020) Like many of you, the AUA has been actively monitoring developments related to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Due to rapidly escalating health concerns, coupled with U.S. President Trump’s emergency declaration, the AUA has made the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 AUA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. There is no higher priority to the AUA than the health, safety and well-being of our members, staff, partners, volunteers, guests and the community at large.
We recognize the AUA Annual Meeting is a major global event for the urology community and preparing for it involves the time and talent of a great many of our physician volunteers, speakers and exhibitors. We are incredibly grateful for their time and deeply disappointed not to be able to hold the meeting as planned.
Given the logistics that go into organizing a meeting of this size, the AUA is not able to reschedule the 2020 Annual Meeting; however, in the coming weeks we intend to tap into the innovative spirit of our specialty and share the abstracts, surgical videos and other important clinical education from our meeting as we are able. All accepted abstracts in the 2020 April supplement to The Journal of Urology.®
The AUA wishes to sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation. Please also allow us time to process full registration fee refunds for the thousands of members who registered for the Annual Meeting. Information for exhibitors and sponsors will be forthcoming.
We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas in 2021.
