An Information Bulletin for our Myeloma Community:

2020 Myeloma Canada National Conference Cancelled Due to COVID-19

As you are all aware, there is an international preoccupation with COVID-19 – which has recently been announced by the WHO as a pandemic – and the important measures to take to help curtail its spread. Which brings us to why you are receiving today’s bulletin: first and foremost, the health of our community is our primordial priority.

The Public Health Agency of Canada is advising people in general to avoid large gatherings and to encourage those who are ill or who have high-risk medical conditions, to not attend such events.

We have been carefully considering the current COVID-19 situation here in Canada. In keeping with the Public Health Agency of Canada’s advice on avoiding mass gatherings during the outbreak as an important preventative measure against spreading the virus, I have made, with the support of the team, the difficult decision to cancel our in-person 2020 Myeloma National Conference, scheduled to be held in Montreal, April 25 and 26, 2020. Again, your well-being is our highest concern.
