The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society's Board of Directors has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting in San Diego, California. After considering all of the ongoing challenges and factors related to COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2), the Board believes this is the right decision to protect our ASM participants, attendees and faculty.


The UHMS will be providing a focused version of the 2020 ASM as enduring materials as a way to provide our membership with important content and highlight the great work and efforts of our community. 


For those who have already pre-registered for the ASM 2020, your funds can be moved to the 2021 meeting, refunded or be placed toward the virtual/online fees (with any difference in the fees refunded).


Our goal is to move the San Diego ASM to 2023.
