Event Update

After careful consideration of COVID-19 information from the CDC and our experts, the AAFP has determined that it is necessary to cancel the PDW and RPS Residency Education Symposium. The decision to cancel isn’t one we took lightly.

We chose to cancel the in-person event because:

  • Many of you are working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 outbreak and you need to remain in your community to serve patients.
  • It's important that we lead by example through social distancing and not contribute to further spread of the virus.

Next Steps UPDATE: All registrations have been canceled. Full refunds will be processed in the next 30 days. 

Hotel Cancellations UPDATE: The Sheraton and Westin hotels have canceled reservations for those who booked within the AAFP block. If you booked outside the AAFP block, you must cancel your own reservation, or you will be charged.
