March 13, 2020

In light of recent events surrounding COVID-19, IC-IMPACTS is cancelling the Annual Research Conference, previously scheduled for June 2020 in Vancouver, BC.

This decision was informed by recent recommendations from the Office of the Provincial Health Officer, BC Centre for Disease Control, and the BC Ministry of Health. IC-IMPACTS acknowledges the need to foster a degree of “social distancing”, as recommended by public health authorities, to protect vulnerable individuals and to ensure that our health care system will not become overburdened.

The health and safety of attendees is our priority. We encourage adhering to government recommendations to avoid non-essential travel for the foreseeable future and are grateful for your understanding.

Sincerely,

Dr. Nemy Banthia,
CEO & Scientific Director, IC-IMPACTS
