Dear CDA Members and Stakeholders:

Due to the rapid evolution and uncertainty around the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision to postpone the Women in Dermatology Leadership Meeting, scheduled for April 3-4, 2020 in Toronto.

This was a difficult decision; however, we must honour our duty to support health and safety within our communities.

We understand that some of you have already made arrangements to attend the meeting and will fully refund registration fees to those who wish to cancel at this time. If you do not cancel your registration, you be will automatically registered for the meeting when it is rescheduled. Travel or accommodation bookings for the conference will need to be handled directly with service providers.

Many of you were looking forward to this meeting and we remain committed to holding it later this year. Please stay tuned as we will communicate updates to CDA members, speakers and sponsors as more information becomes available.

If you have any questions regarding the meeting or wish to request a refund of your registration fees, please contact Ms. Olu Akinwumi at oakinwumi@dermatology.ca

Thank you in advance for your patience as we plan next steps.
