CV Transforum Spring’20 Conference Cancelled

As a result of the escalating COVID-19 global pandemic and the CDC’s recommendation that no events with 50 or more people take place over the next 8 weeks, the CV Transforum Spring’20 has been cancelled.

This is disappointing news, but the health and safety of our members, partners, employees and vendors is paramount. With many of our members on the frontlines of this global pandemic, it’s essential that the MedAxiom Community remains focused on delivering high quality CV care to the most vulnerable patients.

While there won’t be an in-person conference this spring, we are exploring virtual options for key conference presentations to arm the MedAxiom Community with the latest data, knowledge and best practices to optimize CV organizations. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.

MedAxiom will offer a full refund for CV Transforum Spring’20 registration and will cancel all reservations in the “MedAxiom CV Transforum Spring’20” discounted group block at the conference hotel, the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa. Note: If you booked a room outside of the discounted group block or at another local hotel, please cancel your reservation directly.
