The Louisiana School-Based Health Alliance has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel their 24th Annual Conference scheduled for March 26-27 in Alexandria due to the continued rapid spread of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).
LASBHA’s Board of Directors and the conference planning committee have been meticulously reviewing updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH). Ultimately, we feel the obligation to protect the health and safety of school-based health employees and their patients, some of whom may be at a higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19.
In recent days, a number of significant changes have made cancellation of our Conference unavoidable. Throughout the country, agencies are being encouraged to limit or eliminate large events where possible. We have heard from many agencies who are banning attendance of their staff at any conference over the next several weeks. This would greatly reduce our attendance as well as the ability of some speakers to participate.
To ease financial considerations that this cancellation may cause our participants, LASBHA will be offering a full refund to all who have paid their registration fees. Money will be refunded by means paid. If you paid by check, the check will not be processed. While it is likely the hotel will cancel all of the blocked hotel rooms booked with our discount code, we encourage you to reach out to ensure your room reservation has been cancelled.
Please join us in keeping the positive spirit of the Conference alive as we move forward together through this unprecedented situation. Often the best of ideas come from facing the toughest challenges. Also, please consider becoming a paid member of LASBHA this year. Our conference has, in the past, functioned as a fund-raiser for the Louisiana School-Based Health Alliance. Our membership due can assist us in offsetting the cost of canceling our event.
If you have a concern that is not addressed here, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
