The American Diabetes Association® (ADA) continues to monitor current Federal guidance as well as public health guidance in the state of Illinois. At this time, the 80th Scientific Sessions, is scheduled to take place June 12-16, 2020 in Chicago, Illinois at the McCormick Place Convention Center as planned. The McCormick Center is still scheduled to be open, and we are proceeding with planning for a successful, safe live event. In an abundance of caution, we are also exploring options to hold the Scientific Sessions virtually in the event that the McCormick Center should be closed.
Please know that we take the health and safety of all of our participants and partners seriously, and will continue to take all necessary precautions and follow the guidance of the health organizations responsible for tracking and responding to the virus, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
We understand that many of our participants may have one or more factors that place them in the “higher risk” category for COVID-19 and may feel unsafe traveling to Chicago. In light of this, we are modifying our registration fee refund policy.
