As Lurie Children’s leadership continues to address response and safeguards related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we have decided to increase efforts to keep our environment as safe as possible for our staff, visitors, and patients and families. As of today, we made the difficult decision to cancel events, conferences and meetings in the main hospital that involve non-employed staff until further notice. Therefore, the 2020 Chicago Sonographer Update for April 17-18, 2020 is cancelled.
We are continuing to work closely with the Illinois and Chicago Departments of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and follow their guidance on infection control measures as they evolve. We will continue to update our policies as more information becomes available.
We apologize for any inconvenience. Full refunds for the 2020 Chicago Sonographer Update will be issued for registration fees. Any hotel or travel arrangements made for this conference will need to be handled by the registrant.
Thank you for your continuing efforts to support our mission.
