The Academy is monitoring the impacts of the COVID-19 virus and all variants. We are in close contact with the city of Atlanta and the Hyatt Atlanta. Please be reassured that the safety and health of attendees are of the utmost importance to us, and all decisions we make will be with this in mind. As of now, the Academy Annual Meeting & Scientific Symposium is moving forward as planned. We will be following all Centers for Disease Control and Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau protocols that are required at the time of the 2022 Academy Annual Meeting & Scientific Symposium.
