Update on the World NCD Congress 2020

We hope that you are safe and healthy as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. No matter where you live, the global and local situation is affecting each of us personally and professionally.

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 risk assessment and guidelines from the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. The situation remains very much in flux. While our enthusiasm for meeting you all for World NCD Congress 2020 remains high, the current global situation does not support an in-person international gathering this size so soon.

In light of these events, the organizing committee of #WNCD2020 has made the difficult decision not to meet in-person on August 1-6, 2020 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. International travel plans for August, especially ones requiring visa processing time, are too unpredictable at the moment. Therefore, we are currently assessing alternative virtual formats and/or alternative dates.

Our commitment to preventing noncommunicable diseases is unwavering. We have been inspired by the nearly 300 abstracts that we received from dozens of countries around the world. We have been captivated by our plenary speakers. Especially considering those with certain NCDs are more at risk for COVID-19, we are convinced of the need of this important scientific
dialogue.

Once we have finalized alternative formats and/or dates for the 2nd World NCD Congress, we will post these updates and announcements on the website, and also via social media and email. Please do stay tuned.
