2020 Therio Conference
Share |

 

After consideration of the survey responses provided by a large number of our membership and taking into account the current situation related to Covid-19, the SFT Executive Board has decided that the best option for our 2020 Therio Conference is to host a virtual conference. While we know many were looking forward to visiting Pittsburgh, we can assure you that our future meeting plans will include this beautiful city.  While we will miss being together in person this year, we are excited for the opportunity to still be able to present the education and research that our presenters and conference committee have worked so hard to put together for this year’s program.

 

Registration for our first Virtual Therio Conference is now open! Please note that the agenda is subject to change. The event is scheduled for the original conference dates, July 22 - 25. Please visit this page for additional details and information as it becomes available. Registration will be open until July 20.

Registration pricing:

SFT Member: $175
Non-SFT Member: $275
Resident/Mentorship candidates: $125
