Notice of Cancellation

January 7, 2022 Update:

Dear Valued Registrants,

We have closely been following the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, and due to the rapidly increasing number of cases of the Omicron variant, particularly in the host state of Florida, we have made the necessary decision to cancel the 2022 Tourniquetting Transfusion Conference.

Please note the following important points for registered attendees:

  • Registration fees for registered attendees will be refunded in the next 3-5 business days.
  • Hotel reservations made within the room block at the Orlando World Center Marriott will be automatically canceled.
  • FAQ’s, past and additional updates will be posted and archived to https://pbm.cme.ufl.edu/Covid19

Our number one priority is to protect and maintain the health of our attendees, providers, and patients. We hope to have the opportunity to come together in the future.

Sincerely,

UF Continuing Medical Education on behalf of the Tourniquetting Transfusion Conference Planning Committee
