MISWeek 2020 Conference Cancellation Notice

We write this notice to advise you that the MISWEEK 2020 Conference scheduled for August 26-29, 2020 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, Honolulu, Hawaii has been cancelled.

SLS staff and leadership have reached this difficult decision after careful consideration of the evolving nature of this highly fluid situation with prolonged travel restrictions or bans and ongoing health-related concerns related to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our top priority remains the health and safety of all participants at MISWEEK2020, including attendees, faculty, industry partners, staff, vendors, and others involved with our Annual Conference.

We are investigating alternatives to bring the essence of MISWEEK to you and we invite you to visit where we will continue to provide information and updates and to view the array of content that is available.

If you have any questions, please contact the SLS Office at

Thank you for all that you are doing to mitigate this threat and care for patients. We look forward to more pleasant times and the ability to return to face to face gatherings soon.

Stay safe and stay well!
