As CFID members are aware, the AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference 2021 will take place virtually this year (April 25-30). While CFID members will not have the opportunity to come together in person, we are moving ahead with a safe and morale-boosting 2021 Bug Run. We encourage all CFID members to undertake their own 5K run/walk from April 1st to April 30th (while incorporating proper public health practices). Even a walk on your treadmill will do! Virtual participants are encouraged to take a “selfie” of themselves and email their photos to firstname.lastname@example.org Participants will be eligible for prizes and photos will be collected so that a final montage of virtual walkers and runners can be posted on the CFID.
CFID thanks you in advance for participating in the 2021 Bug Run. You are also encouraged to donate to the Bug Run (just click on the Donate button on the CFID website and type in Bug Run in the “research area” field). CFID also thanks to this year’s sponsors (Gilead, SrX / Seva, Biomerieux, KPMG, Micronostyx and BD). Our mandate – to improve the health of Canadians and people worldwide through the support of research and dissemination of knowledge pertaining to the prevention, diagnosis, control and treatment of infectious disease – has never been more relevant.
Thank you for your dedicated efforts.
The CFID Board of Directors
