As the 52nd Annual Convention gets closer, we want you to know that the safety and well-being of our ABPsi family is a priority.
The ABPsi Leadership is closely monitoring the latest developments and following the guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) related to COVID-19.
We are working with Public Health officials in the Detroit Metro Area alongside the local Detroit Chapter of ABPsi. Given the mid-summer timing of the convention, we will continue with planning an exciting and engaging convention at the Crown Plaza Hotel in downtown Detroit.
As things evolve, we will keep you updated.
As practitioners of health and wellness, we know how stressful times like this can be. You can be a voice of calm and reason in your community as we all face this challenge.
For additional information about COVID-19, please read the latest report from the Centers for Disease Control at www.cdc.gov, or your local health department website.
On behalf of ABPsi, thank you for your trust in us. I look forward to seeing you in Detroit,
In your service,
