Dear IAPA members and conference registrants,


The IAPA board and IAPA CME committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the Idaho Academy of Physician Assistants’ 2020 Annual Meeting & CME Conference scheduled for April 2-4.  This decision was not made lightly but was made for the health and safety of our members, speakers, exhibitors and the patients we will return to following the meeting.  The trajectory of the coronavirus is currently unknown, but we believe erring on the side of caution is best.  We are still investigating options for rescheduling or for hosting the conference by virtual means.


We will honor all requests for refunds regardless of any previously advertised cancellation deadlines.  However, we do ask that you be patient as we sort through the many details involved in dismantling a large event.  Our board and CME committee has committed to having a plan of action and a further communication out to conference registrants, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors as soon as possible.


Thank you all for your understanding, patience, and grace during this difficult time.


J. Nathan Thompson PA-C, FHM, FAAPA, CAQ-HM

IAPA CME Committee Co-Chair

IAPA President Elect
