(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.
