    ASMC continues to proceed with planning for the conduct of PDI 2020 the last week of May in Nashville, including Opening Ceremony and Service Day on 27 May and Mini-courses and workshops on 28 and 29 May.  We launched registration on 27 Feb, and thus far, approximately 900 are registered to attend PDI.

    We are closely monitoring media, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization and Tennessee Department of Health statements regarding current status of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, potential for further spread, etc.  Nashville is dedicated to ensuring the appropriate protective measures are in place and providing up-to-date information for their staff and partners. The city continues to monitor the situation and is working closely with the Center for Disease Control.  The city issues updated news alerts from the Nashville Department of Public Health.

    We have also been in close contact with officials at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel.  They are taking appropriate measures regarding cleanliness, sanitization, and food preparation to protect the health and safety of hotel guests and those participating in large group events. ASMC's first priority is the health, safety, and well-being of everyone participating in PDI 2020.

    We are also closely monitoring cancellation of large group events by other organizations - for the most part cancellations have involved either large groups with a significant portion of attendees from overseas locations or events (large or small) scheduled for conduct in west coast or near west coast cities.

    ASMC will issue periodic updates as necessary.

    Did the recent tornado outbreak in the Nashville area cause any projected issues with the PDI?

    Good morning, Joe --


    The Gaylord Opryland Hotel was not impacted by the tornado, therefore did not interrupt the planning for the conduct of PDI 2020.

    Please consider the fact that there is a preponderance of Addison's disease (autoimmunity) in Nashville.

    I have been getting various questions about whether or not ASMC PDI 2020 is still going to be held, do you have any updates? Alot of the concern is if cancelled will the full registration fee be returned and when would the decision be made whether or not it will be held, people are holding off on making airline reservations until they know if it is going to be held. 
    Thank you
