About the 2020 AONN+ Annual Conference
In light of COVID-19, along with the increased acuity, budgetary constraints, and travel restrictions facing the oncology navigation community, the AONN+ leadership has decided to convert the 11th Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference to a virtual experience. Although times remain uncertain, we are excited to provide you once again with education and networking opportunities in the safety of your homes.
The nomination period has closed. Stay tuned for further announcements.
