For weeks, IAHCSMM had been carefully monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and its impact on the 2020 IAHCSMM Annual Conference & Expo. As the crisis evolved into a global pandemic, the IAHCSMM Board of Directors made the decision to cancel the face-to-face conference due to health and wellness concerns for attendees and the community. Because IAHCSMM understands the need for continuing education in the Sterile Processing (SP) profession, our annual conference migrated to a virtual concept. Access to the virtual conference was available at no charge to any SP professional who held a current certification or membership with IAHCSMM. This access included all the on-demand education, live webinars, exhibitor interaction, poster presentations, and more. Best of all, credits achieved through the virtual conference were completely complimentary to those who registered for and participated in the event. The virtual conference was open May 22 through July 20. We thank everyone for participating!
