AMMF Cholangiocarcinoma Conference 2020
Update: 17 March 2020
The last few days have seen an unprecedented health crisis evolving in the UK. We are now, along with the rest of the world, facing the enormous problems of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Protecting the health and safety of all those attending our conference must be the paramount consideration, therefore AMMF’s board has decided that the 2020 CCA Conference, 13-15 May, must be postponed until 2021.
Although this is an unprecedented set of circumstances, it is still hugely disappointing to all of us at AMMF and, we know, to many of you. Therefore, we are currently considering a number of ways we can share information and presentations virtually, and will update re this as soon as we can.
If you have cholangiocarcinoma, you are probably especially worried about the coronavirus (COVID-19), as cancer and its treatment can lower the body’s ability to fight infection. There is information on AMMF’s website, with links to the relevant areas of the NHS, PHE and WHO, who are regularly updating their details. https://ammf.org.uk/covid-19-advice/
AMMF CCA Conference 2020
AMMF’s conference is dedicated exclusively to cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) – with international speakers presenting what’s new in treatments and clinical trials, updates on the cholangiocarcinoma research that AMMF is supporting, and more. Plus, there will be plenty of time for networking and one to one conversations with world-class specialists.
