COVID 19

Sadly, due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome Association has made the difficult decision to postpone the 14th International CVSA Family & Adult Conference, which was scheduled for June 26-28, 2020.

We recognize the change in scheduling is disappointing and feels like we are missing out on the science, education, and networking that are hallmarks of the conference. However, protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our attendees, speakers, volunteers, and staff is of utmost importance.

The conference has been rescheduled at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Milwaukee for June 25-27, 2021.

If you had already registered for the conference you should have received a separate email about your registration fees. If you didn’t, please contact the office at cvsa@cvsaonline.org.
