The 52nd Annual CAHAM Educational Conference & Exhibition has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.

May 12, 2020

Like all of you, CAHAM has been paying close attention to developing news about COVID-19. We place the highest priority on the health and safety of our members, sponsors, and vendors who have vigorously supported CAHAM’s mission over the years.
Based upon survey information from our membership, hospital leaders, vendors, sponsors, speakers, and taking into consideration the current information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local public health reports, the CAHAM Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 52nd Annual CAHAM Educational Conference & Exhibition scheduled for August 18 - 21, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
While we regret cancelling the conference, we are confident that this is in the best interest of our attendees and exhibitors, as well as the communities we serve.
The CAHAM Board of Directors clearly understands the value on education, innovation, and networking opportunities that the annual conference provides. We will continue working with our business partners to find ways we can provide virtual education and interactions, in lieu of an in-person event. Please check out the CAHAM website to find details about planned upcoming webinars from our Education Committee.
CAHAM is committed to our industry and each one of you. Thank you for being dedicated Patient Access professionals and sponsors during this unprecedented time.
We apologize for any inconvenience the conference cancellation may cause you and your organization. We look forward to coming together next year. As soon as we have additional information to share, we will keep you informed about new dates and location.
The CAHAM Board of Directors
