SIR 2020 VIR TUAL - June 13-14
Though the in-person SIR 2020 annual meeting in Seattle was canceled, the scientific and educational content that lies at its heart is moving forward. And while the professional and personal demands posed to the IR community during the COVID-19 pandemic prevent a fully virtual conference, the Annual Meeting Committee is pleased to offer a selection of the many high-quality presentations from SIR 2020, live and accessible online.
The virtual programming will be live June 13-14, noon to 5:15 p.m. EDT. During this time, viewers can tune into presentations based on the SIR 2020 featured and distinguished abstracts, late-breaking abstracts, abstracts of the year and more, as well as educational sessions in which participants can earn CME and SA-CME credits.
Registration is complimentary and will open the last week of May.
View the preliminary program, times and titles are subject to change.
Listen to SIR 2020 Chair Costantino S. Pena, MD, FSIR, discuss the annual meeting, the shift to a virtual program, and his regional experience with COVID-19 on SIR’s The Kinked Wire podcast.
All presenters from SIR 2020 have been invited to upload presentations for the SIR 2020 DVL - if they want, on their own time, and at their own pace. This content will be repurposed into the DVL.
Preparing for the conference involves the time, talent and ideas of a great many of our physician volunteers, speakers, exhibitors and event partners. We’re incredibly grateful for this and deeply disappointed not to be able to postpone or hold the meeting as planned.
Although we are unable to unite in Seattle as we had hoped, we will all unite as a global community to meet these challenges and address the acute clinical care issues ahead. We also know you are faced with tremendous pressure as you confront stress on our health care system. We are focusing our energies on supporting your work in multiple ways, including:
- COVID-19 clinical notification
- Complimentary webinar Is your IR service ready for COVID-19?
- COVID-19 Toolkit for Interventional Radiologists
SIR’s core purpose and mission: to work with and on behalf of our members to improve lives through image-guided therapy. This is true in the products and services we deliver, the voice we bring to important policy and public venues, the research we inspire and the collaborations we value with industry and other healthcare providers. Thank you for your support and commitment.
