We recognize that the COVID-19 public health crisis remains an ongoing concern. With the advancement of vaccinations, treatments, and the recent changes in public health policy, we have elected to move forward with an in-person Symposium this August. We will evaluate the public health situation and make a determination regarding specific event protocols closer to the time of the event. Please monitor your local, state, and national policies for any updates or changes to the COVID-19 regulations. Click here for information on the RiverCentre’s COVID-19 policies.
