#TakeonTech2020 has been cancelled

Conference organizers have been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak. Many uncertainties exist regarding this virus and the emerging global outbreak. As a result, we have decided to take measures to help protect your health and safety and have cancelled the March 24th Take on Technology in-person meeting. We are disappointed to announce that we had to make this difficult decision. Unfortunately, we will be unable to reschedule it as an in-person event, given that most of the expenses to date are non-refundable and non-transferable.

As engagement with patients, families and caregivers is vitally important, we will be exploring the opportunity of hosting the Take on Technology Conference as a virtual event later in the year. We hope to update people as to our plans in the next several months, as the broader impact of COVID-19 in Canada becomes known.
