Special Announcement

AAHKS weighed all options before voting to hold the 30th Annual Meeting as a hybrid format November 5-8 in Dallas. Working with an infectious disease specialist, we put in place multiple safety protocols and are confident in-person attendees will be as safe at the meeting as they would in normal clinic and hospital settings. An ongoing list of these protocols are available in the Health & Safety section of this website. 

A virtual option is available to earn CME, view livestream events, industry symposia and on-demand video content from the General Session. There will be no penalty for switching options or cancelling registration or attendance.

Based on a record number of paper submissions, we are on track for a strong program. We hope you will join us!

Please contact with any questions.
