44th Annual ASPO Conference | to be held virtually

Virtual meeting access details will be sent via email Friday, March 20 to all registrants.

In response to the rapidly changing circumstances associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the ASPO Board of Directors has made the decision to convert the Annual Meeting in Tucson to a virtual meeting. The Board of Directors and Planning Committee carefully weighed the risks to attendees and their communities and determined that the canceling the live meeting was the best course of action. The health and safety of attendees is our top priority.

Please know, this was a difficult decision – the ASPO team and University of Arizona host committee were looking forward to welcoming all of you in Tucson in a few weeks. Our leadership has met daily for the past week to determine the best and safest course of action. ASPO is a non-profit organization and as such we have had to balance all decisions to ensure that we protect the health of meeting attendees and their communities and workplaces, as well as remain stable as an organization and fulfill our vision to accelerate progress towards cancer prevention and control.

ASPO 45th Annual Meeting will be held in Tucson, AZ March 29-31, 2021
