On Friday, March 6, 2020 ImproveCareNow Executive Directors, Dr. Richard Colletti and Dr. Peter Margolis, announced the decision to move the in-person Community Conference scheduled for April 2-4, to a Live Online Community Conference on April 3.

The decision to cancel the in-person Orlando event was not made lightly, and comes amid serious concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19) infections and out of a steadfast commitment to protecting the health of our community – especially those members who may be immunocompromised.

“We understand this will be disappointing news, but in every challenge there is an opportunity. We hope the shift to a live, online event will allow even more members of your team to join us and learn together,” said Colletti and Margolis in an email that was sent to the ImproveCareNow Network.

The ImproveCareNow Community Conference Planning team is working diligently behind the scenes to shift gears and prepare to offer an engaging Community Conference experience in a Live Online format. Stay tuned to the Community Conference event page for up-to-date information on this Pathway to the Future. 

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the Live Online Community Conference.
