As CFID members are aware, the AMMI Canada – CACMID Annual Conference 2020, scheduled to take place in Vancouver, BC (April 29 to May 2) has been cancelled. Clearly, in light of the COVID-19 situation, the right decision was made.
While the Conference has been cancelled, CFID is moving ahead with a safe and hopefully morale boosting version of its 2020 Bug Run. CFID encourages all those who were planning to attend the AMMI Canada meeting – and the CFID membership as a whole – to undertake their own 5K run/walk up until May 25th (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 Photos will be collected and a final montage of participants will be posted on the CFID.
CFID thanks you in advance for participating in the 2020 Bug Run. You are also encouraged to donate to the Bug Run (just click on the Donate button on the CFID website). 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
