The 2020 MHSRS Has Been Cancelled

As a result of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the health system’s ongoing requirements to support the Department of Defense (DoD’s) response, the 2020 Military Health System Research Symposium, scheduled for 24-27 August 2020, has been cancelled.

This decision was made after considering the current Health Protection Conditions of DoD installations, the anticipated continued need for Military Health System support of the Department’s pandemic response efforts over the next eight weeks, and potential continued restrictions on non-mission essential travel.

At this time, there is no plan to hold a virtual meeting.
