We would like to express our concern and support for all the members of the IDDRG community, our professional team, our families and all others affected by this global health crisis.

Governments around the world are now issuing restrictions on travel, gatherings, and meetings in an effort to limit and slow the spread of the virus. After much consideration and taking into account the health and welfare of our IDDRG Conference attendees, sponsors, and staff as our top priority, the IDDRG 2020 will now be held virtually from 26-30 October 2020.

We are committed to preserving the long history and high standards of the IDDRG Conference. Although our 39th Annual Conference will look and feel a little different, the tradition of connecting our community through a virtual platform promises to be an exciting experience. We welcome you to join us in this new endeavor, a Virtual 2020 IDDRG Conference.
