UPDATE: With the shift to an all-virtual format, we would like to remind everyone that attendees are responsible for canceling their own travel reservations, hotel rooms, and any cancellation fees.

Travel and Lodging Information

Potential travelers are encouraged to plan their travel and hotel reservations based on their comfort level and ability. There is always the possibility that the forum will need to pivot to an entirely virtual event should Covid guidelines change. NIH cannot anticipate future pandemic fluctuations or associated shifts in regulations or costs for travel and lodging. Attendees are responsible for making and canceling their travel reservations as needed. Please be mindful of cancellation and change fees as you make your travel plans. Hosted/sponsored travelers will be contacted with travel and lodging instructions directly by the meeting logistics team starting in mid-June.
