2020 Virginia Bariatric Society
September 11-13, 2020
Dear VBS 2020 Registered Attendees and Faculty
After deliberate consideration, the VBS leadership decided to postpone our upcoming meeting due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic and associated travel restrictions imposed by most medical centers to its faculty and staff.
We appreciate that this impact all the effort that you have made to take time off your busy schedule to help advance the care for the patients with Obesity and Metabolic Diseases, but I trust you understand the need for us to make this very unique decision.
We are working with all stakeholders and will have ASAP a new date in this upcoming fall so we can have our meeting.
We are planning to keep the same agenda and will be in touch.
If you prefer to have your registration reimbursed, please email us.
