Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus

March 18, 2020

Dear New York Academy of Sciences community,

News of the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is changing quickly in the US and globally each day. Many countries, agencies, and institutions have now banned travel and participation in large group gatherings, and many healthcare providers are urgently needed to care for patients with COVID-19 in their own institutions.

The New York Academy of Sciences has many educational activities and programs planned in March and April. The health and safety of our community is of utmost importance to us. In an effort to support global initiatives to contain virus spread, the Academy is postponing or moving to an online platform all meetings and events intended to be held in person through April 30, 2020.

We will be reaching out to participants signed up for our upcoming programs and events through April 30, 2020 with additional information and instructions.

Here is what you need to know:

If the value of the registration fee for the event Webinar is less than the value of the registration for in-person attendance, the Academy will process a refund of the difference in value to each registrant via the original method of payment within 90 days following the event date. In addition, access to all event materials will be available online via our Mobile Event App. Click here to download the App to network online with other participants, view the agenda, read speaker bios, and so much more.
