Health & Safety

Under the leadership of the Annual Meeting Committee, ASHT has developed a fantastic in-person meeting experience, as well as a virtual attendee option for those unable to participate in St. Louis, MO.

Registration information for in-person and virtual attendees is available here.

In-person attendees should review the important health and safety information below in advance of the ASHT Annual Meeting. 

The health and safety of all ASHT participants and staff, along with their family members, coworkers and patients continue to remain our top priority and we’d like to thank you for your support as we plan this year's meeting. We are planning a robust conference as the health, safety and well-being of the ASHT community is our highest priority. ASHT staff and volunteer leaders continue to actively monitor updates from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization to ensure we are meeting in a safe environment. 

ASHT will issue any updates if required regarding health, safety and travel protocols.
