COVID-19 statement

At this time the AMA Annual Meeting is still set to take place, but the Board of Trustees and senior management are monitoring the situation and developments and will take necessary actions, and keep the House, Sections and Federation apprised.

The AMA continues to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health departments to monitor and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The AMA will take appropriate precautionary measures to support the health and safety of attendees at the 2020 Annual Meeting. As this is an evolving situation, we will update this page as needed.
