The 2020 Napa Primary Care Conference Is Re-scheduled to 2021
The health and well being of our attendees, faculty and exhibitors is paramount, and we are committed to the safety guidelines associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
As you may know, California has had a spike in cases and the State of California has placed restrictions on large group gatherings. As a result, the Napa Primary Care Conference Planning Committee has decided to re-schedule the 2020 conference to November 3-7, 2021.
We will miss seeing you this November but hope you remain safe and well and join us in 2021.
More information on the 2021 Napa Primary Care Conference will be available in the coming weeks. Please visit the web site at www.cmxtravel.com for updates.
Thank you to everyone who is working to help those sickened by the virus. You have our support and gratitude.
Stay safe. Be well.
