Explore answers to frequently asked questions about the Chordoma Community Conferences and email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Chordoma Foundation is closely monitoring the continuing developments pertaining to the novel coronavirus/COVID-19. We want to assure anyone planning to attend our upcoming International Research Workshop (ICRW) or International Chordoma Community Conference (ICCC) in Boston that your health and safety are our top priorities. We are tracking all travel restrictions issued by the U.S. government, as well as information and guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
At this time, there is no plan to cancel or postpone either the ICRW or the ICCC. However, due to the international nature of these conferences, we ask you to please be aware of the possibility of cancellation or postponement as the situation around the world evolves and new information becomes available.
If cancellation or postponement becomes necessary, conference registration fees will be refunded in full, but we would not be able to reimburse you for the cost of travel you have already scheduled or purchased. We encourage you to consider refundable or changeable options for plane tickets, hotel rooms, etc. when making travel arrangements. The room block at the conference hotel, the Boston Marriott Cambridge Hotel, has a cancellation policy of 72 hours before check-in.
We will provide further updates in the coming weeks. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions at email@example.com.
Come prepared to ask questions and take notes. Saturday’s program will last from approximately 8 AM to 5 PM, so try to get a good rest the night before and wear comfortable clothes. We recommend dressing in layers, as room temperatures may vary. Bring whatever makes you most comfortable.
You may also find it helpful to read our glossary of medical terms, as the medical vocabulary can be difficult to understand. Being familiar with terms helps make the expert talks more understandable.
One of our Patient Navigators will be happy to answer any questions you have about the conference. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
