Covid-19 and the Conference 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and travel/crowd size restrictions, we will be conducting the 2020 NARHC virtually this year.  The entire conference will be conducted over a three day period with all the same content as if it were in-person.  We will be utilizing an agency that specializes in virtual conferences as well as a virtual platform that will allow us to bring to you all the educational content as if you were sitting in a convention center.  Networking, questions and answers, and social events will be included over the three day period.

Those that register will have access to recorded presentations after the conference through our website.

We are very excited to bring this educational experience to you virtually and look forward to seeing you in September.
