42nd Annual Seminar of The American Academy of Cardiovascular Perfusion

February 2021

After careful consideration and for the health and safety of our attendees, the Council of The American Academy of Cardiovascular Perfusion has decided to move our upcoming meeting in Austin, Texas from February 2021 to February 2022.  There are still too many uncertainties for a possible second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Fall along with travel bans and decreased reimbursement for travel expenses for us to hold an in-person meeting in early 2021. 

The Academy will still hold a conference in February 2021, but it will be completely virtual.  The Academy plans to remain flexible to the needs of the perfusion profession so the meeting will include all the elements for which the Academy conferences have come to be known. While the format of the meeting will change, we are excited about the challenge of meeting the learning needs of all our delegates, sponsors, and friends.

Thanks everyone for your contributions and we look forward to working with all of you to make this virtual meeting a huge success!
