THE XXVIII Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis

International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis Cancels Annual Congress Due to Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic in Italy and Globally

A message from ISTH President Claire McLintock, M.D., and ISTH President-Elect Jeffrey Weitz, M.D.

In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we regretfully announce that the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) has canceled the XXVIII Congress of the ISTH, originally scheduled to take place in Milan, Italy from July 11-15, 2020. In lieu of an in-person scientific exchange, the ISTH will organize a virtual meeting to share the latest research and education.
 
As always, the health and safety of our attendees, partners, vendors and staff is our priority. For weeks, we have closely monitored updates from the World Health Organization (WHO) on the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, and have worked with our Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and local health authorities in Italy while thoroughly exploring all possible options. This decision comes after the number of COVID-19 cases in Italy, and elsewhere, have continue to escalate and increasing global travel restrictions have been put in place. We continue to stand in solidarity with our LOC, the Italian thrombosis and hemostasis community and the people of Italy during this particularly difficult time.
